After a spirited debate in court this morning, Superior Court Judge Laura Inveen found two of the charges sufficient to proceed with the recall election. Details will follow later but here's what's next.
We have to wait until the 16th day after the hearing to begin gathering signatures on the recall petition. After we gather the signatures, we will turn them into the elections office to be verified. The elections office is required to schedule an election between 45 and 60 days after the signatures are verified.
So we're still at least a couple of months away from seeing this recall effort come to a conclusion.
Stay tuned. We'll keep you updated and let you know when we're ready to gather signatures.
It's a good day for the City of Pacific.
