"The city under is the new Jim Crow Law! BANCO Recall petition for School Board President Martha Momany and Mayor James Hightower is desperate"
2014-03-03 from Rev Edward Pinkney:
BANCO collected over 10,000 signatures in a three month period to recall President Martha Momany,Trustee Willie Lark and Trustee Lue Buchana from the Benton Harbor School Board.
President Martha Momany,is being recalled for not adhering to the open meeting act by failing to call for a vote to end the school board meeting. Willie Lark and Lue Buchana for failing to exercise his and her duty to appoint a seventh member to the Benton Harbor Area School Board By August 31, 2013.
All three do not support the Benton Harbor school children in the community. They have hidden agenda.
School Board Trustee Joseph Taylor spoke at the BANCO meeting and made a former request to not to recall President Martha Momany, Willie Lark and Lue Buchana.Mr. Joseph Taylor stated" he could work with them".
Over four hundred members of BANCO, voted to give Joseph Taylor a chance and our support.
We voted to not recall the school board members only because of Trustee Joseph Taylor.
We collected more than 10,000 signatures on the recall petitions. It was just to many opportunities to have the sheriff out intimidating the community and forcing the signers to say, I did not know it was a recall or I did not sign the petition only because,they are intimidated.
The recall of Mayor Hightower is a perfect example. When a young ladies who go to his church signed the recall petition. When I told her Mayor Hightower will be out to intimidate you alone with the sheriff. She wanted me to remove her name and I crossed her name out.
Hightower intimidated her to write a letter and she notarized the letter along with a second person.
I have asked the FBI to look into this voter suppression effort by James Hightower, Berrien County sheriff, Berrien County clerk office and the prosecutor office, along with the civil rights violation. James Hightower is desperate.
Voter suppression is a strategy to influence the outcome of an election by discouraging or preventing people from exercising the right to sign a petition for a recall of an election official without being intimidated by Mayor Hightower, Sheriff Department, Berrien County clerk office and the prosecutor office.
It took a decade of struggle by the civil rights movement part of a upsurge of social struggle that included the working class battle of the 1930's and 1940's that established industrial unions in America and the death of Martyr's to the cause of equality to force the Johnson administration and congress to enact the land mark legislation.
BANCO will recall the recall for the school board members. We will be watching the school board very closely.
