Lucas City Councilman-Elect Not a US Citizen
- Published on Friday, 05 April 2013 09:17
Adam Baker is a British immigrant living in Lucas. He has applied for US citizenship but has been waiting for two years to receive it.
Baker won a city council seat in Tuesday's election after 62 people wrote in his name, giving him three more votes than the incumbent, Tamara Seirer.
Baker says he told people before the election about his citizenship status and that he likely wouldn't be able to be on the council.
The Russell County Commission will discuss the issue while canvassing votes on Monday at 10 AM.Read More Local News
