Those involved with the recall effort approached officials in each of the county seats in the 30th Senate District to schedule signature collection events to be held on Thursdays for the next 8 weeks until the goal for signatures is reached. Those events have been set up in Green Bay and Oconto from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm for recall supporters to sign the petition, drop off completed petitions and learn how to be a circulator. However, events weren’t set up in Marinette at city hall. According to promotion of the signature collection events the following is mentioned:
Marinette Mayor, Robert Harbick, personally denied the right to use Marinette city hall for the purpose of peaceful circulation of recall petitions.
Why did Mayor Harbick deny recall supporters request to set up signature collection events? What reason could there be to not allow peaceful collection of petition signatures at city hall? Could it have to do with personal opposition to the recall effort?
If anyone has an opportunity to speak with Mayor Harbick ask him why he personally denied the request of Recall Hansen to hold signature collection events at city hall.
