Hope Select Board Members Bruce Haffner and Budget Committee member Elinor Goldberg are set to face a recall over claims that Haffner tried to undercut the roads budget, threatened officials and an employee among other complaints. Goldberg's petition cites an attempt to undermine and oust the Town Administrator.
Two of the lead petitioners are married to other members of the Select Board.
Petitioners needed 98 signatures, they handed in 106 for Haffner and 103 for Goldberg.
The vote may be scheduled for February 16 or held off till the June town meeting, as the law allows a recall to be delayed if it can be scheduled at the same time as another election.
