Constituents protest looming recall election of councilwoman
"They're trying to fast track this recall," said Robert Blancken. "It's just dirty politics in Colorado Springs."
Blancken is a 30 year resident of District 4 in Southeast Colorado Springs. He claims council is violating city charter by setting the recall election date before the 40 day review process is complete. The signatures to get the recall on the ballot were certified by the city clerk on January 14th. Blancken and Collins believe a review will turn up invalid signatures.
