Alamo Recall is On

Alamo Supervisor Lou Conti and Trustee Dawn-Potter Williams will face a recall election is November.

The recall election will operate differently than in years past due to new laws instituted in 2012, according to Snow.

In prior years, a "yes or no" recall question accompanied by petition language would appear on the November ballot to determine whether or not a municipality supported the recall, according to Snow. If a recall was approved, then another election would be held to find a replacement for the remainder of the term.

Under the new law, Snow said, there will now be only one election. Democrats have until 5 p.m. July 7 to nominate an opponent to run against Conti and any other citizens seeking to run as nonaffiliated candidates must also file by that date. Snow said he has not received notification from the Kalamazoo County Democratic Party yet as to whether or not they plan to nominate a candidate.
Recall the Alamo?
Bad Idea
