The Association for Fair Government (AFG) is a Georgia organization formed to keep tabs on local government. Along with the Thompson Building Wrecking Company, the Association for Fair Government filed a complaint on June 4, 2008 against the city of Augusta and Procurement Director Geri Sams, alleging that they were not in compliance with Georgia's Sunshine Law.[1] This compliant followed up an earlier suit filed against Augusta by AFG, where the plaintiffs alleged that bidding procedures were not adhered to. "The lawsuit also alleges Ms. Sams doesn't follow city code in obtaining quotes, doesn't retain requisition forms and doesn't maintain a list of bidders."[2]

Robert Mullins, the attorney for AFG spearheading the lawsuit and complaint, also contended that every open records request he had filed with the city had been met with excessive delays.[3]
