Johnson City Attorneys Calling on Board of Education Member to Step Down

Johnson City attorneys are calling on Board of Education member Stacie Torbett to step down or be removed altogether after she moved outside the city limits.

Lawyers for the city say Johnson City’s charter states that “Board of Education members must be citizens of the city and reside within the corporate limits of the city of Johnson City.”

Last month, Torbett moved from a home near The Ridges to between Boones Creek and Gray, just outside city limits.

Torbett’s term is not up until December of 2020.
