“However, rather than allow this baseless motion from Decatur to delay the process, I have decided on my own volition to abstain from participating in this particular case. The case involving that city should proceed based on the facts of the matter, not to be distracted by unfounded attacks on any member of the review board. I have full confidence in the six other board members for rendering a just decision.”
In papers the city filed Thursday, Decatur argues Kent should remove himself from the case because of what he has said on television and published on Twitter and on InsiderAdvantage.com, the online news site he leads. The city, for example, pointed to how Kent appeared on the televised “Georgia Gang” public affairs program and called Cagle a “winner” for “taking a shot” at Decatur.
