YUCCA VALLEY RECALL PETITIONS FAIL TO QUALIFY FOR THE BALLOT

YUCCA VALLEY RECALL PETITIONS FAIL TO QUALIFY FOR THE BALLOT

Last month, recall proponents turned in to the Yucca Valley Town Clerk’s office recall petitions with about 260 more signatures than were needed to recall Council Member George Huntington and Mayor Pro Tem Robert Lombardo. Yet after review by the County Registrar of Voters, about 450 of those signatures were thrown out, leaving the number of signatures on the recall petitions short 197 and 189 signatures, respectively. Managing editor Tami Roleff fills in the details about the failed recall effort…
The effort to recall Council Member George Huntington and Mayor Pro Tem Robert Lombardo has failed. Town Clerk Lesley Copeland announced yesterday that the recall petitions did not have enough valid signatures to qualify for a recall election. Each recall petition needed 2,461 votes to qualify for a recall election; the County Registrar of Voters determined there were only 2,272 valid signatures for Lombardo and 2,264 for Huntington. Copeland said because there were not enough valid signatures, the recall process has failed. Council Member George Huntington was thankful the recall process was finally over. “I am very extremely relieved that the recall process has ended and I can devote full attention to what I should. The last six months have taken an emotional toll on myself and my family. I’m sincerely glad it’s over.”
