Chattanooga: City attorney asking for permission to represent city in recall suit

by Cliff Hightower

City Attorney Mike McMahan today asked the City Council to authorize him to represent the city of Chattanooga in a lawsuit against the recall effort.

McMahan said he would not be representing the mayor in the suit and said the city should join the lawsuit in order to get clarification on different parts of the City Charter. Mayor Ron Littlefield filed a lawsuit in Circuit Court in Hamilton County to stop any recall election or referendum from occurring in the Nov. 2 general election.

The comments were made during the City Council’s Legal and Legislative Committee meeting.

City officials said today the expenses would be time spent by City Attorney staff.

The City Council could vote on the measure tonight.

I think that Ron should jut take it with pride and go back to Georgia! Take your friend Anita Ebersole who you gave a $75k per year raise after you took office. Take your followers ( Steve Leach) and your dictators ( Lee Norris ) with you. And dont forget your womanizer Paul Page! You are a liar and we city workers and taxpayers HATE MEAN people like you!

It's great that City Attorney Mike McMahon finally shows up. I was worried that he got lost on the way to his law firm that had been collecting $15,000.00 a month for "secretarial services" from the taxpayers.

Great job, Mike. Way to be on the forefront of City business. Somehow I knew you wouldn't speak until you were given permission by your handlers.

Leave a forwarding address where you can be found and we'll know where to send your kibble.
