Summary of Special Commission meeting to canvas the April 11, 2017 Recall Vote

HERE IS HOW THE COMMUNITIES VOTED

By Nicole Barde

The special meeting was called in order to canvas the vote and if the recall succeeded to select a temporary interim Sheriff until the interim Sheriff could be selected.

All three Commissioners, Pat Whitten and DA Langer were there. It started at 10 AM and was done before 10:15. It was cut and dry, no conversation, just the numbers.

During public comment I got up and thanked Marshall for not signing the recall petition and told him that I hoped that it was because he had put the community first.

Nuff said there.

Anyway, the detail of the voting by precinct can be found here.

In Summary here is how the communities in the 5 major precincts voted:
