Recall petitions have been taken out against Mayor David Lockhart and council members Maudie McCord, Latresa Akins and Tommy Smith for allegedly forcing the City Manager and replace him with a friend of Lockhart.
The petition also claims that a Councilwoman received a $35,000 settlement for violations of the ADA, which the petition claims was a pay-off.
Georgia is a malfeasance state, so cause is required. The cause appears to be violations of ethic ordinances in the appointment of an Election Supervisor.
At the same time, the council is looking to replace the five members of the ethics board, so a whole lot of trouble.
No word on how many signatures are needed.
