SALINAS, Calif. - Salinas City Clerk Patty Barajas tells Central Coast News that Mayor Joe Gunter has officially submitted his statement to voters on the recall petition against him before the 4 p.m. deadline.
Now, the group behind the recall effort has 10 days to publish notification of the recall in the local newspaper.
Barajas says recall organizers also need to submit a sample of the recall petition notice within 10 days to the city. She says the sample petition must be approved and must meet specific election codes.
The group behind the recall claims Mayor Gunter is denying Councilmember Jose Castaneda the right to also serve on a school board and other city committees.
