Election Recall in Lanier County

At a school board meeting a couple weeks ago angry residents asked Lanier County School Board Chairman Phillip Connell to resign.

After days of no word from Connell, the residents decided to take action. Now, they've filed an application for a recall of the 2004 election that put Connell on the board, citing a violation of oath and acts of malfeasance while in office.

One hundred fifty signatures must be gathered before the recall process can go any further.

Connell refuses comment.
