City Clerk: Enough signatures to hold Kader recall election

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - La Crosse's City Clerk says there are enough valid signatures to order a recall against Council member Audrey Kader.

City Clerk Teri Lehrke announced late Friday afternoon that she's issued a certificate of sufficiency in regards to the recall.

Kader, who represents the 11th District, had challenged a number of signatures gathered by recall supporters.  Her argument was that a number of those who signed the petition did not use a valid address. 

On December 14, Lehrke tossed out a number of signatures based on state statutes and guidance from the state's Government Accountability Board.  The result was that there were not enough signatures to force the recall.

A local conservative group appealed the decision, which led to the determination that there were enough valid signatures for a recall.

Supporters needed 158 valid signatures to make the recall happen.

There hasn't been a date set for the recall.
