Nevada: Five Ely Council members hit with petitions
Petitions have been filed against Ely City Council members Sam Hansen, Marty Westland, Randy Lee, Dale Derbidge and Bruce Setterstrom. Mayor Melody Van Camp will be targeted once her term hits six months. Petitioners need 25% of turnout (which ranges from 198-215). The issue seems to be how members of the council got into the Nevada Northern Railway's offices for an audit (a County Commissioner got in through a second story window). The council claims the Railway owes a significant amount to the city.
