Board attorney, county administrator fired, replaced
On successive split votes, the county Board of Supervisors voted Monday night to replace longtime Board attorney Andy Dulaney and county administrator Clifton Johnson.
Supervisor McKinley Daley, representing District 5, interrupted halfway through the regular meeting agenda to move that the Board “hire Ellis Pittman...to replace Dulaney Law Firm as Board attorney.”
District 4’s Henry Nickson quickly seconded, and before Board president James Dunn could get a handle on the developing situation, Phillis Williams of District 3 joined Daley and Nickson to oust Dulaney.
“Can you justify it?” Dunn broke in.
