A hearing was held Thursday to review protests of the petition to recall District 1 Councilmember Paul Donahue. Independent hearing officer Karen Goldman heard all eight protests that were submitted to the Town. She will issue a written decision to the Town on the validity of the original petition no later than the end of business Tuesday. The Town’s Charter allows a petition to be circulated in attempt to recall a Town Councilmember within a certain timeframe. A group of petitioners has done so in an effort to recall Donahue. They obtained the required number of signatures, and those signatures were deemed sufficient by the Town Clerk. Then, eight protests challenging the validity of the petition were filed and then heard by an independent hearing officer. A video of that hearing is online at CRgov.com/recall. The hearing was about two hours, so the video may take a moment to load. Depending on Goldman’s decision, Town Council will address the timing of an election during its regular meeting on Tuesday. View the agenda at CRgov.com/agendas. After the May 3 Council meeting, the Town will continue to update the community. It’s important to note Donahue will continue to serve in office while this recall process takes place. Donahue was first elected in 2008, and most recently elected in 2012. His term will expire in November, and he is term-limited. Get Town news straight to your inbox.
