In what boils down to a struggle for power, three members of the Hearne City Council have filled suit against the City of Hearne. What began shortly after the previous May City Council election, the newly elected members, Hazel Embra, Joyce Rattler and LaShaunda White along with the Hearne Oversight Committee filed a recall petition naming Councilwoman Maxine Vaughn. In a heated discussion, the council voted three – three therefore allowing no action to be taken on the petition. The lawsuit was filled in answer to that no-action.
