BUTLER, GA (WTVM) - Concerned parents and residents of Taylor County are still looking for answers as to why former Superintendent Dr. Gary Gibson was fired without explanation.
Parents have now hired an attorney to represent Dr. Gibson. The only statement coming from school officials simply states the board voted to terminate Dr. Gibson's contract in a 3-2 vote in September.
At Monday night's school board meeting, the attorney spoke about the firing and one parent followed by a speech in support of Gibson, saying his early termination was flat out wrong.
"If it has to be litigation we are prepared to do it, as I've said we don't have to reiterate the things that are illegal, the board certainly aware or have been made aware after they were all violated which makes Mr. Greens votes illegal," said Roger Land, the attorney for Dr. Gibson.
