Baldwin schools take stock after tax defeat, lawsuit – LagniappeLagniappe

State Auditor Jim Zeigler filed a lawsuit May 1 in Montgomery County against Attorney General Luther Strange and the Baldwin County Board of Education over what he called misuse of taxpayer funds during the “Build Baldwin Now” campaign for higher property taxes in Baldwin County earlier this year.

Zeigler announced the lawsuit from behind a podium in the conference room at the Wind Chase Inn in Loxley on Monday. The suit names Zeigler, a Mobile resident, and Baldwin County residents David Peterson and Charles L. McMinn as plaintiffs.

Strange, school board President Norman Moore, Superintendent Robbie Owen and board members David Tarwater, Angie Swiger and Shannon Cauley are named as defendants.
