Judge reinstates former Leland School Board member

April 22, 2013

Yolanda Wheatley lost her bid for re-election to the Leland School Board in November. But now Circuit Court Judge Ashley Hines has ruled that Wheatley was the only qualified candidate for the District 3 seat and therefore must be reinstated. Wheatley contested her loss to Brandon Keith Taylor a few weeks after the November 6th election and asked for a review. The judge agreed that Taylor’s paperwork contained errors and ruled that Wheatley is the winner of the election. A date for her swearing-in has not been set.
