Seventy-one Town of Spider Lake voters have filed a petition for an election to recall Town Chairman John Leighton, setting the stage for a probable recall vote on Tuesday, Aug. 11—the same date as the state-wide fall 2020 primary election.

Town Clerk Chelsea Tripodi told the Record the petition was filed with her on June 8. The minimum number of Spider Lake eligible voters needing to sign a recall petition for it to be valid is 69, which is 25 percent of the number of town voters in the last governor’s election.
