Melissa Freitag recall, Falmouth, Massachusetts, 2010

Jump to: navigation, search

An effort to recall Melissa Freitag from her position as a Selectwoman in Falmouth, Massachusetts came to naught after recall supporters abandoned their effort.[1][2]

In order for the recall to be placed on the ballot, supporters would have had to obtain a minimum of 3,857 signatures from registered voters in the town. That number represents the required 15% of voters. Also, the correct procedures require no more than 25 percent of signatures be from the same precinct.

However, the possibility of a recall taking place in the town is slim. According to Town Clerk Michael Palmer: "It’s not easy to recall somebody and that’s the intent; quite frankly you’re questioning someone’s reputation so there are big hurdles to overcome here."
