    City forgot to hold 2009 election

    DESOTO, GA (WALB) Two members of the city council in a small Sumter County town weren't actually elected to those posts.

    No one in the city realized they were supposed to hold an election last year.

    The Secretary of State's office says they better fix it soon.

    They face seven potential violations, including failing to publish public notice 30 days prior to the election, and failing to appoint an election superintendent.

    "We just forgot it, that's the only thing that happened we just forgot it," said Addie Cutts, City of DeSoto Councilwoman.

    She said no one in the city council ever raised the question of holding elections in 2009 during their regular scheduled meetings.

    "We never mentioned it, not to my knowledge," said Cutts.

    DeSoto is in Sumter County and population is 204. The city has 100 registered to vote; Cutts said the voting mistake is being rectified.

    "The mayor said he was going to let someone who handles elections do it for us every year so we won't forget it," said Cutts.

    Councilwoman Cutts told WALB the state gave them until March to hold the election.

    DoSoto also faces other violations because they can't provide records that show election results from 2005 and 2007.
    I pass through DeSoto going to Americus. This is frickin hilarious to me.
    I feel that once a black fella has referred to white foks as "honky paleface devil white-trash cracker redneck Caspers," he's abdicated the right to get upset about the "N" word. But that's just me. -- Jim Goad

    The first sign of impending serfdom is when you trade your self determination, your individual responsibility and your vote to the Government in return for subsistance. -LS-
