Andre is committed to ethical governance and contends that “we must have a government as good as the people of Atlanta.” While serving on the City Council, he led the charge for the most sweeping ethics, procurement, and transparency reforms in recent Atlanta history. Major initiatives include:
- Creating government purchase card regulations to ensure accountability in how government officials spend discretionary funds.
- Establishing the Independent Procurement Review Office to provide mandatory independent review of all procurements over $1 million, helping to ensure transparency and fairness in government contracting.
- Working closely with the City Ethics Office to review existing practices and create a set of recommendations and policies to ensure that tax dollars are spent with integrity, and oversight.
