In just minutes, Dwayne Hall, vice president of the Miller County Patriots group plans to file an official notice of a recall petition against Texarkana, Arkansas Ward 2 Board of Director member Laney Harris at Texarkana City Hall.

The recall petition against Harris is in response to his vote earlier this month in support of rehiring City Manager Harold Boldt, Hall said. 

A resident of Ward 2, Hall said, this notice is the first of four recall petition notices that will be filed by members of his group within the next few days. Other petition notices will be filed to recall the Rev. Londell Williams, Ward 3; Mike Jones, Ward 5; and Sue Johnson, Ward 6.

If the recall petitions are successful, a special election will be held to fill the slots. However, the current BOD members will be able to run for their seats in that election.
