Recall petitions were submitted to the Douglas County Elections office August 13, and enough signatures were validated to put the recall on the ballot, according to Douglas County Clerk Patricia Hitt.
Directors Dennis Sifford, Stuart Kramer, Phyllis (Jeanie) Smith and Dave Meador had until August 20 to resign or else face a recall election.
Chief Petitioner Robert Russell says he and others want these directors recalled because they believe the board is overbudgeting, and it doesn’t consider what the people who live in their district want when making its decisions.
The last day to register to vote in the recall election is August 28. Ballots will be mailed on Aug. 31 and must be returned by 8 p.m. on Sept. 18.
