Statement from former Chatham County Chairman Pete Liakakis on the Paula Deen controversy:

I was one of her customers. When she started making sandwiches, her two sons would deliver them. They would com to my business.

I have known her for a number or years and I know she has helped a number of people. She has brought a lot of recognition to Savannah.

Somebody else will pick her up because you can see she now has food items that have her name on it. There are a lot of other things that she is still on, other national shows.

I think she is a good person. She is an individual that helps a lot of people.

I think a lot of people that come to Savannah have heard about it. Some come because of her but you have got a lot of other people that come in because they have heard so much about Savannah. Last year we had over 12 million tourists and they spent over $2 billion.

She will continue to make contributions and hopefully whatever has occurred that might have caused this will be straightened out.
