Herman Village Board of Trustee member Shaun Swan is facing a January 26 recall vote (the vote will be by mail), after 48 signatures were validated, they needed 36. All of the Village Planning Commissioners and other current and former board members signed the petition. One of the former members allegedly punched Swan at the village's annual budget hearing on September 15.
The only accusation in the article is that Swan admitted in a board meeting to running a stop sign, that was later voted to be removed at the same board meeting. A previous attempt to recall Swan was thrown out due to questions about signatures.
