Cost Of Recall Election $20K — Hayes

Kootenai County Clerk Cliff Hayes told The Press that the cost of a recall election in November, should recalls of four Coeur d'Alene officials be on the ballot, would be roughly $20,000. That is in addition to the cost to run the general election. Last week, citizens hoping to oust Coeur d'Alene Mayor Sandi Bloem and council members, Mike Kennedy, Woody McEvers and Deanna Goodlander began officially collecting the 4,311 signatures per candidate needed to get each on the ballot in November. The recall referendum will go before voters if enough valid signatures are collected by June 19 at 5 p.m./Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: Expensive? Reasonable?
