Commissioner Henri Brooks days on County Commission are at an end.

An investigation by the Shelby County Attorney revealed that Brooks' use of 1867 Crump as her place of residence for her District 2, Position 2 seat was not accurate.

According to neighbors, Brooks did not live at the residence. That prompted the investigation and fellow Commissioners to call for her ousting.

The Shelby County Charter Section 5.10(a) says that, "[a]ny county official who shall voluntarily remove his or her residence outside the election district from which elected or appointed shall forfeit that office immediately."

The revelation that Brooks was not residing at her listed address comes after a period of intense media scrutiny following a series of racially charged outbursts, both at County Commission and in a parking lot altercation at Methodist University Hospital.

Brooks was first elected to her County Commission seat in 2006. She is not running for re-election, as her term limit is up. She is currently running for Juvenile Court Clerk.
