Roswell’s Term Limits Law Applies to Jere Wood, Too

So says Fulton County Superior Court Judge Craig Schwall, anyway. From Arielle Kass in the AJC, comes news that Roswell Mayor Jere Wood is not only prevented from running for another term as Mayor, but also removed from office -immediately.

A Thursday order from Fulton County Superior Court Judge Craig Schwall said Wood, who was first elected in 1997, was ineligible to run in 2013, when he was last elected…

“The office of Mayor of Roswell stands vacant and shall be filled pursuant to the terms of the City Charter,” the order reads.” 

The order could be temporarily stayed if Wood files an appeal.
