Wisconsin: Raymond Town Supervisor kicked out in recall, gets only 9 votes out of 335

Raymond Town Supervisor Joe Pohlhammer was ousted in a recall vote on Tuesday, getting only nine votes out of 335 cast. Tim Geszvain won the seat with 285 votes.

According to the Town Clerk:

Pohlhammer missed more meetings than any other supervisor she has known, including the annual and budget meetings.
Interesting point that the recall contained 501 signatures, which was much larger than turnout in the election.

  1. Note that this hugely successful recall would not have been allowed if malfeasance were required to qualify an official for recall.

    That is an incumbent protection scheme which WI Republican legislators are hoping to pass into law.
