Judge To Set Final Hearing On Gwinnett Recall Effort

A Hall County Superior Court Judge will set a final hearing to determine whether a recall effort against Gwinnett County Commission Chairman Charles Bannister should proceed.  The recall effort began after the Gwinnett County Commission voted 4:1 to increase property taxes by nearly 21%.

In late March, resident Randolph De Vault received certification for more than 100 signatures he presented to the elections office, the first step in applying for a recall petition.  The petition lists five charges, ranging from the county’s handling of its solid waste plan to the its feud with cities over a service delivery agreement and accuses Chairman Bannister of malfeasance.

This month, Chairman Bannister filed a motion to stop the elections office from granting the recall petition of Mr. De Vault .  Chairman Bannister contends the petition does not cite sufficient grounds for a recall.

  1. Mr. Bannister should read the petition’s instructions and then lookup the word “brief” when used in conjunctiion with explanation. If multiple lawsuits incurred by his management of Gwinnett’s assets and funds is not enough to allow a recall petition circulation them we are all doomed to tryanny as described by some of this country’s greatest patriots who were trying to build a place to live and not peddle influence.
