The attempt to recall Fate Mayor Bill Broderick and Mayor Pro Tem Sheri Garber has been put off due to a technical ruling by the City Secretary, who claims that all municipal recall elections must be held on a “uniform election date" in either November and May (she says that it is too late for the November date). The two are facing reelection in May. It is unclear whether the petitioners will challenge this ruling in court, as i
Petitioners needed 150 signatures, which they seemed to have recently handed in. The lead petitioner claims that Broderick kicked him off the Fate Development Corporation Board for questioning an anticipated cost of $10,000 to $12,000 for Broderick, his wife and Garber to make an economic development trip to China.
