An effort to recall three of the five Baker
County School Board members falls flat. Friday, a judge ruled against a group of
citizens who wanted to get rid of Brenda King, Chasity Moye and Sharon Heard.
said they offered no evidence that the board members committed any malpractice
while in office.
"The judge threw this
out and actually told the applicants that they gotta have some evidence. You
can't recall somebody because you don't like them. You can't recall them
because you don't like what they're doing, or that you think that they're wrong,"
said Tommy Coleman, Baker County School Board Attorney.
A group called the Baker County Community
Council collected three hundred signatures on a recall petition. Leaders claimed those board members didn't follow meeting rules, fired good
teachers, and hired unqualified workers.
