Maine: Petitions taken out against Five Bath City Councilors

Five Bath City Councilors, Chairman Bernard Wyman and Councilors Andrew Winglass, Meadow Rue Merrill, Sean Paulhus, Carolyn Lockwood., are facing recall petitions over the sale of city property (a former hospital) at a closed-door meeting. The hospital was sold for almost $800,000, though it had an assessed value of $6.5 million. However, the recall proponents are no complaining about the sale, just the due diligence and the way it went down.

Petitioners need signatures totaling 50% (plus one) of the number of votes the councilor received in the last election. No word on the time frame to collect.
