LonGene Leonard, a former Bluff City Alderman who led an unsuccessful recall effort against four board members in the November election told the Herald-Courier that he doesn't think it's right for the BMA to make the charter changes.Before the proposed charter changes are approved they must abe submitted and pass a vote in both houses of the Tennessee General Assembly, then be signed by the governor. After that, a two-thirds majority of the BMA must approve the proposed changes.
