Henry Cook recall, Randolph County School District, Georgia (2010)
A judge in the Superior Court of Randolph County decided on March 29, 2010 that there is sufficient probable cause to allow recall supporters to go ahead with their recall effort. In Georgia, a judge must make such a determination before recall papers can be circulated.
According to recall supporters, when Cook served as the Board of Education's chairman, he abused his power by not allowing other members to put items on meeting agendas and disregarding majority votes.
Path to the ballot
To force a recall election, recall organizers must collect signatures on recall petitions equalling 30% of registered voters in District 5 in 45 days. About 2,300 signatures will be needed. If that step is accomplished, an election must be held. That election could occur as early as July 2010.
