Mayor James Walker of White Hall did not call tonight’s Town Council meeting set for 6 p.m., according to Town Clerk Shanavia Sellers.
Sellers said, “The Mayor did not call this meeting, and I was not directed by the Mayor to post it, therefore, I did not post the announcement. Council Person Eli Seaborn posted it himself Dec. 28, 2015.” 
According to the post, “The city of white Hall annoucnes a special called meeting on Dec 29 at City Hall at 6 p.m. Agenda items: 1 Appointment of Councilperson; 2 Consideration of Water Board matters; 3. Consideration of personnel positions;
4 Others.”
The Signal attempted to contact both Walker and Seaborn, but did not received a response.
Sellers told the Signal, “As far as I know, the mayor has been out for a week. He will not return until tomorrow (Wednesday).”
She said, “If I am not mistaken, from what I was told they did go through the mayor and asked for those meetings, but the mayor told then that he was going to be out of town and that they needed to be rescheduled for after the holidays.”
Sellers said as far as she knew the mayor knows nothing about the (recent) work session or the meeting tonight. That he was out for the Christmas holidays.
