A Call for Resignation is Expected Tomorrow Evening at Calhoun Falls’ City Council Meeting

October 22, 2012

A call for resignation; at least which is what can be expected during tomorrow evening’s Calhoun Falls City Council Meeting.

Councilman Charlie Tillman is expected to call for the resignation of Councilman Keith Ashley, for an alleged racist remark that Ashley made during a called council meeting in late September.

Tillman said that Ashley called him “dumber than dark” during a discussion about what the council should do with an extra $15,000 the city had recovered in its budget. Ashley vehemently denied the claim that what he said was a racist remark.

Nonetheless, Councilman Tillman said he would call for Councilman Ashley’s resignation during tomorrow night’s meeting. Councilman Ashley stated he will not be in attendance for the meeting, as he will be out of town.

The meeting will be held at the Calhoun Falls Civic Center at 6:00pm tomorrow evening.
