Montana: Helena Mayor and City Commissioners facing petitions over city manager hire

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.
