Petitioners handed in 150 signatures calling for the recall of Councilor Sue Allen. Allen has been accused of blocking the appointment of two candidates to a vacant council seat. Petitioners need 127 valid signatures. Part of the reason Allen is facing a recall (instead of two other councilors who opposed the candidates), is that the two other councilors recently faced failed recall campaigns. Under the law, the petitioner would have had to pay the $3,500 price for the recall against them.
Lakeside had recalls in 2006 and 2009.
