Orzell: They’re Clamoring For Recall

The leader of an effort to recall Coeur d’Alene’s mayor and half of the City Council characterized his differences with the council as an ideological dispute over their vision for Coeur d’Alene, including how much public money should be spent on downtown improvement. “There’s an inordinate focus on downtown business interests…There’s a feeling that downtown is getting more than its share of attention,” said Frank Orzell, a retired management consultant who is leading the recall effort. A $14.2 million makeover planned for McEuen Field – a popular green space on Lake Coeur d’Alene – was simply the latest controversy in a growing discontent with city leadership, Orzell said. “McEuen Field coalesced a lot of people into taking action,” he said. “They started clamoring for recall”/Becky Kramer, SR.

DFO: If you're keeping score at home, this is the 7th recall post today. Sawwy.

Question: As their a clamor for recall citywide, or simply in the circles in which Orzell runs?
