Hey Elgin, Take a Tip from Buffalo Grove!
According to the Daily Herald, Buffalo Grove, Illinois, a suburb not too far from Elgin, Illinois, passed a recall ordinance on Monday in an effort to recall a Buffalo Grove trustee. According to the Herald,
The recall ordinance was first considered last fall, but was tabled for further work. As approved, it is a 200-day process, with residents required first to give notice, then to file petitions, which then lead to the village board adopting an ordinance putting the question on the ballot.
The petitions must be signed by not less than 33 percent of the average of the ballots cast in the last two preceding municipal elections, and not fewer than 1,000 people.
Does anyone see why something similar cannot be undertaken in Elgin?
