Missouri: St. Louis County Councilman facing recall efforts

Councilman Ernie Trakas (R) is facing a recall effort with a number of complaints, the only specific one being a delay of zoning approval process. According to the report, petitioners would need more than 14,000 signatures to get on the ballot, though that sounds like a misprint and is probably a fraction of that.

Tarkas claims the recall is being lef by a legislative assistant he fired (the former St. George Mayor Carmen Wilkerson) as well as the owner of construction company that Tarkas has blocked from moving into a new place.

Tarkas has also regularly voted with the council's Democrats, leading to disgruntled supporters in the GOP.
