Georgia: Blackshear Council member ousted in recall election

Blackshear Council member Shawn Godwin was ousted in a December 1 recall, 39-14 (15.92 % of voters cast ballots). The replacement race will be held soon. 

Council members Linda Gail Dennison and Timmy Sapp were also 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.
