Gov. Nathan Deal's office is looking for Brunswick residents willing to take the place of a city commissioner who has been suspended. Deal must appoint someone to fill the post of Brunswick Commissioner James Brooks, who has been suspended while he awaits trial on charges of racketeering and violating his oath of office.
A city official who was arrested in a case involving the shooting death of a 13-month-old boy has surrendered on charges stemming from a racketeering indictment in a neighboring county. Brunswick City Commissioner and Mayor Pro Tem James Henry Brooks Sr. surrendered at the Camden County jail Monday.
