CS Recall Petition Signatures Verified

Working virtually non-stop for two weeks, the College Station City Secretary’s Office has finished verifying signatures seeking recall of three members of the city council.

Members of Save Wellborn dot org collected enough signatures for all three. In the case of Mayor Nancy Berry, recall proponents picked up five more registered voters above the minimum. The margin was much higher for the others, by 342 for Dave Ruesink and 318 for Katy-Marie Lyles.

While recall supporters quoted the city charter in calling for the recall election to be held in March or April, city officials quote state law in holding the election May 14th. Berry, Lyles, and Ruesink have until next Tuesday, February first, to decide whether to resign. For those who don’t resign, City Secretary Sherry Mashburn says the city council is expected to order the recall election February 10th.

From the City of College Station:

Nancy Berry, 1,553 signatures required, 1,558 verified.

Katy-Marie Lyles, 1,210 signatures required, 1,528 verified.

Dave Ruesink, 1,160 signatures required, 1,502 verified.
