Demorest Councilmen Nathan Davis and John Hendrix are both facing recall efforts. Part of the precipitating event is calls for the resignation of City Manager Kim Simonds after the firing of the police chief, who was rehired after threatening a lawsuit. No word on the amount signatures needed or whether it will meet the malfeasance standards that are usually used in Georgia.
The councilmen started in January. A third councilmember is leaving because he is moving out of the city.
