VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Valdosta mayor's attempt to postpone a ethics committee hearing on his travel expenses was denied.

Valdosta businessman Roy Taylor accused Mayor John Fretti of having his travel expenses paid by two sources. The Mayor told us previously the accusations are politically driven. Last week Mayor Fretti and his attorney asked a superior court judge to issue an injunction to prevent the investigative committee from moving forward. Taylor and his attorney filed an ethics complaint in April.

"Stage two is the appointment of an investigations committee which does not judge guilt or innocence but simply determines if there's enough evidence presented in an ethics complaint to warrant on ethics board," said J. Holder Smith, Roy Taylor's attorney.

Valdosta ethics committee hearing will be held as scheduled Tuesday at 4 p.m. at city hall.
