On March 30th, the Floyd County Board of Elections held a special called meeting to go into a brief executive session and discuss personnel matters involving Former Floyd County Elections Chief Clerk, Robert Brady.
Back in November of 2020, it was revealed that close to 2,600 votes had not been reported on election night and had been discovered during the hand recount (state audit) of the Georgia 2020 presidential election.
On November 19th 2020, The board initially voted to reprimand Brady for repeated failure to meet performance objectives, but because this was Brady’s second reprimand in six months, he was fired.
Mr. Brady shortly thereafter filed an appeal upon being fired from his position on the election board.
In this (March 30th) special called meeting, Dr. Melanie Conrad of the Election Board announced that Mr. Brady has now officially agreed to forgo a hearing by withdrawing his appeal, and that the election board has changed his termination status for his former position to a resignation instead.
Dr. Conrad stated that this update would remove Brady’s second reprimand, and also stated that the decision to change the status from a termination to a resignation is originally what the Floyd Elections board wanted to do in the first place before the appeal was filed.
