Pacific voters finally get their chance to take some concrete action to take back their city beginning at noon tomorrow, Friday April 26th. The state Supreme Court issued their decision today allowing the recall effort to proceed to the signature gathering stage. This long-awaited step begins with a flourish across the street from city hall with the honor of the first signature going to recall committee chairman Don Thomson. Don promises to sign nice and big so Mayor Sun won't have any trouble reading it.
As soon as Don signs, the floodgates can open and other registered voters in Pacific can add their names to the petition. We need about 450 signatures, but want to get plenty extra so there is a wide margin for error. All signatures must be verified by the election department before a special election can be scheduled. Only currently registered voters within Pacific city limits are allowed to sign the petition. Others who want to help can assist with doorbelling for signatures.
Registered voters can stop by in front of the gift shop at 111 3rd Ave. SE (across from city hall) between noon and 6pm tomorrow. It would be wonderful to have a line of people ready to sign at noon! If you can't make it tomorrow, petitions will also available on Saturday from 10am til 2pm at the same location. If you want to help doorbell, come by the gift shop and get an assignment.
Stop by tomorrow and celebrate with us! See you at high noon!
