Whitehall councilwoman responds to recall effort
WHITEHALL, Ohio: In response to the campaign to remove her from office, Whitehall Councilwoman Jackie Thompson mailed out approximately 2,200 fliers during the week of October 7, 2009 to residents that voted absentee in the November 2008 election. The fliers, paid for by Thompson’s own money, show derogatory comments from opponents, some from blogs that have been dedicated to the recall effort and others from web forums. Thompson states on the fliers: "Are these the people you want setting the agenda for Whitehall? Vote 'Yes' to keep Thompson on council.” Thompson plans on hand-delivering extra fliers.
The recall effort is being led by residents upset that she has tried multiple times to ban pit bulls from the city.
