An effort to recall Travis Chandler and Linda Strickland
from their positions on the Boulder City, Nevada
, city council
was launched in 2008 and blocked by a judge
in 2010. The effort was initiated in 2008 but after a ruling by the Colorado Secretary of State
the recall effort was deemed invalid. However, in a December 11, 2009
ruling by 1st District Court Judge James Russell the recall effort was approved to move forward.
The Nevada Supreme Court
blocked the recall effort in July 2010.
Path to the ballot
In order to place the measure on the ballot, recall supporters are required to collect signatures from a minimum of 25% of voters who cast ballots in the previous election.
A recall election is estimated to cost the city approximately $20,000.
