Committee to Recall Wanggaard

At its meeting March 12, 2012, the Board accepted staff’s recommendation to deny certain challenges filed by Senator Wanggaard for the reasons stated in the accompanying Evaluation of Challenges memorandum; to strike 140 signatures as duplicate names; to strike an additional 603 invalid signatures; and, to deduct 3,827 “Remaining Challenges” signatures from the staff-determined total of verified signatures. The Board verified that at least 19,142 valid signatures are contained in the recall petition offered for filing against Senator Wanggaard. The Board further directed staff to file the recall petition and attach a certificate of sufficiency on a date to be determined by the Board in accordance with any court order governing this matter.
