Two Board members of the Laclede Water District, Chair Randy McLain and Larry Doyle, are facing recall threats over complaints of a rate hike and fiscal mismanagement.
The recall has a bizarre circumstance here -- petitioners would ordinarily need 50% of the signatures of those who voted in the last election (not clear if that is the number or they had to have actually voted). However, the district turned its election records over to the county. Somewhere in this transfer, the records were lost. So, now they only need 20% of the whole district.
