A recall election is quite similar to a regular election in which there are candidates for offices to be elected. As with any regular election, town staff is simply responsible for reviewing petitions to determine if there are sufficient signatures, recommending the date for the election and conducting the election. Town staff does not and will not take a position for or against any candidate for recall. As with any election, voters must rely on their knowledge of the individuals and the campaign materials available. Town staff does not review nor comment on the political statements as to why a person should or should not be recalled, that is part of the political process.
