I personally find the Hancock County Alliance for Good Government a much more authoritative resource….
AG says Bay must appoint new school board trustee ~ Dwayne Bremer
The Mississippi Attorney General’s Office has ruled that a 180-day grace period for reappointing officials does not apply to school boards.
Ya think? So why didn’t the Mayor reappoint his loyal political supporter Maurice Singleton? I’d posit ineptitude as we’ve seen plenty of examples of such but the Mayor had another explanation:
Fillingame said he felt it would be best for the new city administration and council to make the appointment after it takes over in June.
Well alrighty then, this matter is closed until after the election correct? Well not quite when it comes to Hizzoner that routinely speaks out of both sides of his mouth:
Fillingame said he will likely discuss the appointment with the city council at the city’s next meeting.
“We had several reasons why we wanted to wait to make the appointment,” Fillingame said. “Now that we have an opinion, we will move forward.”
