Ealum recall petitions certified, recall goes forward

December 14, 2006

Lee County-  The recall effort against Lee County Commissioner Jo Ealum moved another step forward Thursday.  One hundred and thirteen signatures on a recall petition were certified by the voter registrar. They only needed 100. 

One Hundred and thirty eight signatures were submitted, but 25 of them were not certified on technicalities.  Ealum's father and campaign manager says they will file a request tomorrow in Superior Court to stop the recall because they don't believe the reasons are valid. 

"We know of three different applications where they had three different reasons as to why she should be recalled, and the law is very clear that it's all got to be the same, you can't tell one group of people that this is a reason that she's going to be recalled and then go tell another group of people differently," said Darrell Ealum, Father and Campaign Manager. 

If the recall effort moves forward, the group will have to collect the signatures of 30 percent of registered voters or 729 more signatures on a petition in order for a recall election to be held.
