York, Neb. — York’s mayor has submitted his defense statement for inclusion on recall petitions.
Council member Diane Wolfe filed the recall petition affidavit last month, saying Mayor Orval Stahr has broken the trust of the city department heads and is “neglectful of York’s best interests.”
York Mayor Oravl Stahr released the following statement:
“I ran for Mayor because I believe that it is time to do what is right for the taxpayers of the City by controlling City government spending and expanding employment opportunities and the tax base. The accusations made herein have been documented to be false. I will continue to work for economic expansion, balanced budgets and openness in City government.”
The York News-Times reports that Wolfe will have 30 days to collect at least 1,149 signatures from registered city of York voters to get the measure on a ballot for a public vote.
