High Point City Council may use Berger removal example to get rid of mayor


HIGH POINT, NC (NEWS-RECORD.COM) -- Some members of High Point City Council want Mayor Bernita Sims to resign. They might present a resolution Thursday asking her to step down.

If she won’t, can they fire her?

In an editorial last week, we said no. The council has no authority to remove one of its members.

Greensboro blogger Billy Jones said we were wrong. He cited a case in New Hanover County, where commissioners voted in May to unseat Brian Berger.

That did happen. But this is far from a simple question.

High Point City Council Attempts to Disenfranchise Voters

Democracy is Threatened!
As Lincoln stated... "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom -- and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."
They should never be allowed to take away our voice and vote. It si a threat to democracy everywhere. The majority rules!

That did happen, but wasn't

That did happen, but wasn't he reinstated. I agree, leave it p to the voters.

Again, this is something

Again, this is something that should be left to the voters.

Ahhh, I hope Woody White is

Ahhh, I hope Woody White is reading.

Can Weasel Woody White read- or just bully folks

Weasel Woody White can pout and shout and attack others- but can he read? for example, when was the last time he read the US Constitution?
Has he ever read a book about ethics or working well with others.
Read this posting- only if he isn't acting out his poor manners and lack of class by attacking others.
