“I can hardly talk to you right now because the phone keeps ringing, the emails are full, we’ve got a group of people here today to help me field all the phone calls, the emails, and how we’re logistically going to cover contacting all the people who have contacted us,” Kim Simac, who’s leading the recall effort, said.
Simac says — and the GAB confirms — she filed the necessary recall paperwork. She says Saturday more than 200 people will start traveling the district to collect signatures.
“The goal is 20,000 signatures and to replace Senator Holperin,” Simac said. “We need someone to represent us with dignity, and simply getting up and running out of the state when the going gets tough is very embarrassing for us people up here in the district.”
If you live in the 12th Senate district you can get information on the recall effort and signature forms at Northwoods Patriots.
