Arkansas: Judge reverses ruling, votes will be counted in Hughes Mayor recall
The recall vote against Hughes Mayor Grady Collum is back on, after a judge reversed her ruling stating that any votes in the recall would not be counted. The issue seems to be the dismissal of the entire police force and the hiring of a replacement chief without any explanation. There are allegations of racism in the dismissal and the mayor did call the police on officers asking questions about the firings.
