City Council recall is dead

May 12, 2014

WOONSOCKET – An effort to force a special election to recall the two newest members of the City Council is dead, members of the grassroots committee that spearheaded the initiative acknowledged Monday.
Today is the deadline for the so-called petitioner’s committee to turn over to the Board of Canvassers the required minimum number of signatures to keep the recall alive. But Jim Cournoyer, one of the committee’s 10 members, said the group would not reach its goal.
“That said, the Petitioners Committee is confident...their efforts served as a wake-up call to our elected officials,” he said via e-mail. “They in fact have an important job with real responsibilities of doing their homework, listening to and representing their constituents and not simply providing blind support on critical issues.”
