It has been 17 years and 81 days since the city’s pledge to build the West Branch Library.

I received the following press release today, March 23, 2015 from the Recall Councilman Gary Sherwood Committee.

“For Immediate Release:

Recall Councilman Gary Sherwood Campaign In Full Swing

March 15, 2015 – Glendale, Arizona

“The Recall Councilman Gary Sherwood Committee announced today the launch of its website, STOP SHERWOOD, a new contact point for the recall of Gary Sherwood, the current Councilmember from Glendale’s Sahuaro District as well as its signature-gathering petition drive.

“Committee Chairperson Anna Lee said, ‘The Stop Sherwood website contains pages and pages of documents that prove what Gary Sherwood has done against the interests of Glendale and its citizens, especially those of us he is supposed to be representing, here in the Sahuaro District. It also contains contact information for those who want to sign a petition, share their experiences, put a sign in their yard or join the campaign. We will also be adding a Calendar of Events page so the public can attend rallies and other functions pertaining to the Sherwood recall.’

“This, the committee’s second effort to unseat Councilmember Sherwood, was filed February 20, 2015. The first time, the committee attempted to submit nearly 4,400 Sahuaro District voter signatures to the City Clerk’s office, but because of a technicality in the printing on the petition form, they were all invalidated. Lee said, “What a shame! More people signed a petition to get Sherwood out of office than voted for him in the first place.  We will be sure that these constituents are heard from in this campaign.”

“The Recall Councilman Gary Sherwood Committee has already begun its petition campaign to once again gather the required signatures for a recall vote. “Our website and the aggressive outreach campaign we have planned should get the word out. We know we’ll prevail this time,” said Lee.
