Georgia: Judge tosses out recall effort against Mackintosh Chairwoman
A judge threw out the attempt to recall McIntosh County Commission Chairwoman Kelly Spratt -- Georgia is a judicial recall state, so there needs to be a showing of cause. The judge noted that there is no illegality alleged. The decision was based on the implementation of curbside garbage pickup, which resulted in a $128.40 annual user fee onto their property tax bills to pay for the service.
The recall proponents got 100 signatures to apply for the petition, and would have needed 2,426 signatures.
