ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt. (AP) - Voters in St. Johnsbury, Vt., are scheduled to decide at town meeting in March whether they should be able to recall elected officials.
Tom Moore, a new select board member who replaced a controversial incumbent last March, says he wants to make it possible for town officials to be removed by voters even if they have not been defeated, or served a full term.
Vermont Public Radio reports if the charter is amended, a petition signed by 35 percent of the number of registered voters who cast ballots in the most recent annual election would start the recall process.
Jim Rust, a five-year board member, says there are already enough chances to replace select board members; three are up for re-election every year.
