COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho -

The petition to recall the Mayor of Coeur d'Alene and three councilmen has been denied because the petitions did not specify a reason, according to a press release issued by the City Clerk. You can read the entire press release below:

Coeur d'Alene City Clerk Press Release:

April 4, 2012

 

 

Frank Orzell

310 E. Garden Avenue

Coeur d'Alene, ID 83814

 

RE:  Recall Petitions for Mayor Sandi Bloem, Councilman Deanna Goodlander, Councilman Mike Kennedy, Councilman Woody McEvers.

 

Dear Mr. Orzell:

 

Upon review of the four petitions that you submitted this morning regarding the above-noted City officials, I find a deficiency exists in the form of the petition. The petition submitted cites the authority provided in Article 1, Section 2 of the Idaho Constitution; however, the petitions do not provide your reason(s) for the recall as required by I.C. 34-1703(5) and I.C. 34-1708.  

 

I.C. 34-1703 (4) The recall petition for city officers shall be in substantially the following form:

 

RECALL PETITION

To the honorable ...., City Clerk for the City of ....:

We, the undersigned citizens and registered electors of the City of ...., respectfully demand that ...., holding the office of ...., of the City of ...., be recalled by the registered electors of the City of .... for the following reasons, to-wit:

(setting out the reasons for recall in not more than 200 words); that a special election therefor be called; that we, each for himself say: I am a registered elector of the City of ...., my residence, post office address, and the date I signed this petition are correctly written after my name.

 

 

 

and,

 

 I.C. 34-1708

The ballot at any recall election shall be headed "RECALL BALLOT" and on the ballot shall be printed in not more than two hundred (200) words the reason for demanding the recall of the officer named in the recall petition, and in not more than two hundred (200) words the officer's justification of his course in office. Then the question of whether the officer should be recalled shall be placed on the ballot in a form substantially similar to the following:

  FOR recalling ..... who holds office of ....

  AGAINST recalling ..... who holds office of ....

 

 

Also, just as a suggestion, I would recommend including the Council Seat # to which the Councilman was elected.  The seat numbers for which they ran and were elected are:  Mike Kennedy, Council Seat #2, Woody McEvers, Council Seat #4, and Deanna Goodlander, Council Seat #6.   

 

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please feel free in contacting me.

 

Sincerely,

 

 

Susan K. Weathers, CMC

City Clerk
