    Villa Park Recall Petitions Approved

    RECALLMANIA!!!!

    VP Council Member Pauly Recall Petitions Approved
    The City of Villa Park officially approved the wording of the Petitions to Recall Villa Park Council Member Deborah Pauly on Thursday July 5th, 2007. Proponents of the Recall will have until September 4th to collect the 1,000 signatures needed to hold a Recall Election.

    The recall proponent group, Villa Park Citizens for Honest Government, contends that Pauly intimidated and harassed voters at polling places on Election Day. The group also contends that the Pauly campaign posted political campaign signs on property were the owners did not support Pauly. The group contends these actions helped sway voters in the November 2006 election where Pauly won by 93 votes (1.3% of the vote). The group also filed a complaint with the office of the Orange County District Attorney.

    Pauly and her supporters say this is all sour grapes and the Recall Proponents are trying to undo the election that upset the old guard power elite. Pauly’s slim margin (the top three vote getters out of five were elected) led to the ouster of former Mayor and Council Member Patricia Bortle (16.4% with 1129 votes) and appointed Council Member incumbent and Foothill Sentry writer and commentator Robert Fauteux (16.3% with 1122 votes).

    With Villa Park part of the Orange Unified School District, the Pauly Recall petitioners will join the Orange Unified School District petitioners who are collecting signatures to oust OUSD Trustee Steve Rocco. This week other groups in Orange County have announced other recall campaign attempts. A group in Capistrano Valley Unified School District has announced plans to recall four of the sprawling district’s trustees, and in Dana Point an effort has been announced to oust Dana Point Council Member Diane Harkley.

    The Greater Orange News Service has had a Rocco Recall Countdown Clock in place and has now added a Pauly Recall Countdown Clock. To view the clocks CLICK ON:
