Massachusetts: Two officials from Winchendon facing petitions

Selectmen Fedor Berndt and Vice Chairman Beth Hunt are both facing potential recalls in May. The issue was the discovery of a $3.8 million deficit over claims of lack of communication, double accounting entries, inaccurate reports and a crash of the financial software. The four selectman renewed the Town Manager's contract.

Petitioners need 954 signatures, they claim to have over 1,100. There is a turnout veto here -- at least 20% of voters have to show up (1273) for the recall to count.

Other officials had faced recall efforts before.
