Barron County (WQOW) - The fall primary is next week and there's a recall on the ballot.
A Town of Sumner board supervisor is facing a recall. Citizens for Responsible Land Use is the group behind the effort. The following reasons were given for the recall of Supervisor James Crotteau:
1. Crotteau voted against the mining moratorium in January. According to the petition organizers, the moratorium allowed the residents to develop ordinances to protect their health, safety and welfare.
2. In March, he participated in the groundbreaking display of a mine while the moratorium was in place. The group claimed he was promoting the interest of the mining company rather than honor his obligation to the residents of Sumner by defending the moratorium.
The petition required 73 signatures and 97 valid signatures were counted.
There are three candidates in the recall election that is scheduled for August 14th. They are: Al Bartsch, James Crotteau and Ed Werts.
WQOW News 18 contacted Crotteau on Monday, but has not heard back.
