Georgia: Three Blackshear Council members facing petition threat

Blackshear Council members Linda Gail Dennison, Shawn Godwin and Timmy Sapp are facing recall petitions, with the council holding a hearing on the charges. Two former mayors have signed the petitions. The issue appears to be their initial opposition to the hiring of the City Clerk. There's also a kitchen sink of other complaints over meeting attendance, open meeting violations and claims of censorship on social media.

Georgia is a malfeasance standard/judicial recall state, so a showing of cause is needed. Petitioners would need 67, 97 or 112 signatures to get on the ballot.
