BAYOU LA BATRE, Ala. (WALA) - Bayou La Batre Councilwoman Ida Mae Coleman's name will not be on the ballot for the special mayoral election set for August.
Mobile County Probate Court Judge Don Davis filed a request on Friday, June 29 to strike Coleman's name from the ballot.
In the complaint, Judge Davis said Coleman failed to submit the proper paperwork before the deadline. A Mobile county judge approved of Judge Davis' request.
Coleman is a longtime Place 1 Councilwoman and had been serving as the interim mayor following Stan Wright, who was ousted in March. Wright was recently sentenced to 15 months in federal prison with three years probation after his conviction on corruption and intimidation charges.
The special election to fill the mayor's seat is scheduled for August, 13, 2013.
