Hearne council deadlocks on vote to set election date

By  | 

HEARNE, Tex. (KBTX) - Hearne city council members deadlocked on a vote Tuesday to set a date for a general and special election.

The tie vote stemmed from concerns about the special election, which would put a recall of councilman Rodrick Jackson on the ballot.

Jackson claims the petition was done illegally.

Now the decision to set a date will go to a county judge.
