Following the verification of signatures, Granite Shoals Mayor Carl Brugger has resigned. Brugger was termlimited and not running for reelection. The recall is over a vote to give the City Manager a raise. Two councilmembers tried to rescind it but failed in a 5-2 vote.
Councilor Bruce Jones is still facing a vote, though he is running for reelection on the November ballot.
Petitioners handed in 221 signatures and 186 were validated. They needed 152 signatures (6.5 percent of registered voters) to get on the ballot.
