Extra! Final Rejecton Rate 23%

From news release provided moments ago by Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes: “Today Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes announced the completion of signature verifications for the Coeur d’Alene Recall petitions.  'We’ve completed 100% of the petition verifications.  The final reject rate is approximately 23% for all three Council members and for the Mayor,' Hayes said. 'We will deliver the petitions back to the City of Coeur d’Alene this afternoon,' Hayes concluded.” At the rate of 23 percent disqualification, the final signature totals should be close to the following:

  • Mayor Sandi Bloem (with 5384 signatures against her): 4146, or 165 signatures short
  • Councilman Mike Kennedy (with 5327 signatures against him): 4102, or 209 signatures short
  • Councilwoman Deanna Goodlander (with 5314 against her): 4092, or 219 signatures short
  • Councilman Woody McEvers (with 5267 signatures against him): 4056, or 255 signatures short
