November 28-- A Superior Court hearing is set regarding the recall election petition against the Montgomery County school board chairwoman.
Senior Judge L.A. McConnell, Jr. will hold a hearing Monday morning at nine o'clock at the Montgomery County courthouse in Mount Vernon. He will determine if there is sufficient cause to proceed with a petition seeking recall of chairwoman Deloris James.
A group of Montgomery County citizens headed by Rudy Nanney claims James has violated her oath of office, committed misconduct in office and is guilty of failure to perform duties prescribed by law.
James' attorney, Joe McGovern of Glennville, sought the hearing and said in court papers the petition circulated by Nanney and four others alleges facts which are false solely for political purposes.
McGovern also states the recall petition application secured by Nanney from Election Superintendent Rubie Nell Sanders does not comply with state law and lacks a factual basis to support a recall election.
