Jim McGuire keeps board place despite River Valley anti-gay speech

In a particular conference Wednesday with Marion County Board of Developmental Disabilities (MCBDD) Superintendent Cheryl Plaster, the Marion County Commissioners voted to not take out Jim McGuire from his board appointment soon after he gave an anti-gay speech at the River Valley graduation commencement May 27.

After opening up the general public conference at 10 a.m. Wednesday, the board sought the tips of legal counsel from Marion County Assistant Prosecutor William Owen in government session.

The lawful counsel saw no lawful requirement to take away McGuire from his position with the county board, Owen mentioned after the return from govt session to a general public meeting at 1 p.m. Wednesday.

“The board of commissioners did not deliberate. The board of commissioners sought the tips of counsel. It is my assistance to the board, which I think they have acknowledged, is that it would not be lawfully appropriate for the board of county commissioners to take away Mr. McGuire from his posture,” Owen stated.
