Petitions are beng circulated in Lakeside for the recall of Mayor Ed Gowan, Councilor Naomi Parker and Councilor Eddy Langley, (no relation to Dennis Langley). This is the second recall filed in Lakeside this past week, the first being against Councilor Sue Allen, with petitions being circulated for that recall as well.
According to Chief Petitioner Darline Atkin it is in answer to the recall filed against one of the hardest working and most prepared Lakeside councilors, Sue Allen. Atkin believes the charges leveled at Allen in the Mildred M. Dover-Bennett aka Midge Viedo statement for recall are “bogus.”
Atkin see’s the recall against the three named in her recall as justified, but would have waited on the voters to speak in the next elections but for the agressive action of the Dover-Bennett faction. “It would just be wrong for Sue Allen to get recalled, stated Atkin. They will get the signatures necessary to put it on the ballot, Atkin stated confidently. She is hopeful that the other side will see the wisdom in letting it die and wait for the next regular election.”
“Voter’s for Fairness headed by Atkin’s said, “we will submit our signatures when, and if, she submits hers. That way the city will only pay for one ballot.”
