Macon council member Henry Gibson says the Macon-Bibb Board of Elections did not make a fair decision about Al Tillman's candidacy in the district nine race.
Gibson filed an appeal with the Bibb County Superior Court last week.
The board voted last month to allow Tillman to run for the commissioner's seat. Gibson says Tillman rented an apartment in that district but still lives in his home, which is across the street in district eight.
"The board was incompetent if you ask me," says Gibson. "I felt the feeling that everyone in the room was affiliated with Al Tillman, and I wanted a fair, impartial hearing, because I feel I have some valid points that I wanted to bring out."
The appeal is scheduled for this Friday with Judge Stephen Boswell.
