A former state lawmaker representing Dawson County and a small portion of northeast Forsyth County and other officials with a south Forsyth County business were among six recently subpoenaed by a U.S. Senate committee. Per a news release from the United States Senate Committee on Finance, Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and ranking member Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) issued the subpoenas “for documents in their bipartisan probe of syndicated conservation-easement transactions” to Matthew Campbell, Robert McCullough, Matt Ornstein, Mark Pickett, Frank Schuler and Eugene “Chip” Pearson, who served as District 51 state Senator from 2005 to 2011.
