City Clerk Spells Out Petition Handling

Coeur d’AleneCity Clerk Susan Weathers spells out the steps she will take in handling the recall petitions beginning tomorrow (Friday):

"First, this process is not required by law but rather a process as a result of the request made by the Recall people and the fact that I have endeavored to, not only with this process but throughout this entire recall process, to be as open and transparent as I can humanly be.

  • On Friday, June 8, at 9:00 a.m.  All parties involved have been invited to “inspect” the copier/scanner that will be used to scan the petitions.  (This is a result of a request from the Recall group).
  • On Monday, June 11th, at 9:00 a.m. Frank Orzell has informed me that he will deliver the petitions to me. Before I will allow him to file them, I will confirm that the individuals who had requested their names be removed have had the opportunity to do so. If not, I will escort Mr. Orzell to the Warner room with his petitions until anyone who had requested but may have not had the opportunity to do so, to come to City Hall and remove their names prior to allowing Mr. Orzell to file the petitions. I will then allow Mr. Orzell to file the petitions with me.

Question: Which office is being more transparent in preparing to verify Coeur d'Alene recall petitions -- Coeur d'Alene clerk's office or Kootenai County clerk's office?
