Petition Signers Having 2nd Thoughts

I.C. 34-1713(3) The signer of any recall petition may remove his own name from the petition by crossing out, obliterating, or otherwise defacing his own signature at any time prior to the time when the petition is filed.

Responding to an email, City Clerk Susan Weathers tells Huckleberries Online that nine to 12 residents who'd signed the RecallCDA petitions contacted her office Wednesday to ask how to take their names off the petitions. She emails: “As the I.C. indicates, you must remove your own name, no one else can do it for you.   The preferred process would be to send an email request to both me at and to Frank Orzell at requesting your name be taken off.  Mr. Orzell indicated that he would then search the petitions (a group of names at a time), then contact the individuals to let them know when the petitions would be available for them to go to the Recall CDA Office to remove their names. In order to avoid confusion, Mr. Orzell requested that anyone wishing to remove their names from the petition contact him directly and I am requesting that citizens copy me on their requests so I can confirm they had the opportunity to remove their names.  If anyone prefers to call us directly - my phone number of 769-2231 and Mr. Orzell's phone number is 819-2912.”

Question: Do you know anyone who is having second thoughts about signing the petitions?
