ARIZONA’S LISTING SUDDENLY PULLED BY RECALL GROUP
After an official recall petition was sent to an Arizona man to pick up the signatures of snowbirds in that state, other illegal recall petition activity has been identified by Must Read Alaska readers in Oregon and Hawaii.
The Recall Dunleavy Committee had listed an Arizona contact for those out of state who want to recall Gov. Mike Dunleavy. After Must Read Alaska’s story that brought up the illegality of gathering signatures out of state, that listing was removed from the group’s official page.
Readers sent in notices for two other sites — Oahu, and Astoria, Oregon, where signatures have already been picked up by one eager petition booklet holder:
Astoria is the home to many seasonal Alaskans who work in the commercial fishing industry in the summer, and winter over in the Lower 48.
This weekend is the 23rd annual “FisherPoets Gathering” for writers and creative types in Oregon celebrating commercial fishing.
Alaska Statute 15.45.575 that says petitions may only be circulated in person throughout the state and in person.
