Carol Berning recall, Leoti, Kansas (2010)
A vote about whether to recall Carol Berning from her position as a member of the Leoti, Kansas, city council took place on August 3, 2010. Berning was recalled from her seat. However, two days prior to the recall election, Berning resigned from her position. The council had not yet accepted her resignation when the recall election took place.
Jeanene French, a member of the group who led the recall effort, said, "We were successful in obtaining enough signatures to call for a vote, at the Aug. 3 primary, whether or not to remove Carol Berning from the Leoti City Council."
The motivation for the recall effort is anger on the part of city employees about a new employee handbook that mandates fewer hours of sick leave every month, fewer paid days off a year and a different method of calculating overtime hours.
