Helena Mayor Wilmot Collins and City Commissioners Andres Haladay and Heather O'Loughlin are facing petitions over their decision to hire an interim City Manager.
Petitioners need about 4300 signatures (20% of registered voters) in 90 days. Since Montana is a malfeasance standard/judicial recall state, the petition language must meet the for cause requirement and be approved by a judge to get on the ballot. The claim is that the decision was made without proper public input and the input of the full council.
Update: A Lawsuit has been filed to stop the recall effort.
