Level Plains Mayor Petition

Level Plains Mayor Petition

A group of residents in one Dale County city are asking for their mayor's resignation.

Petition organizers say Level Plains Mayor Tim Jackson should “go for the overall good of the town”.

Last February, Mayor Jackson had councilman Willie Reynolds forcibly removed from a council meeting.

Petition supporters say its one example of the mayor overstepping his bounds as an elected official.

The petition requests the mayor to resign so "business may be conducted in a civil manner".

Residents say that want “a civil meeting...that's where the public and council can participate in the meeting. They say the council meetings have become unruly.

Although a recall election does not appear possible, those who signed the petition believe the mayor will understand the general sentiment of the people.
