Montrose Citizens Begin Recall Effort

Aug 4th @ 6:50 am in News by Scott Staley

A local group has stood up in an effort to recall the entire board of County Commissioners in Montrose. Mike Krull and Duke Richardson filed recall petitions yesterday at the county offices. The two say that the entire board of commissioners is not listening to the people about taxes and transparency and the ongoing legal action against the hospital. The cover of the petition states that the commissioners “are a moral hazard as shown by the absence of responsibility for risky and incompetent behavior at the expense of the citizens…”. Now that the petition paperwork has been filed the county will decide how many signatures are needed for each district but it is estimated that the petitions will need more than 3,000 signatures. Recall Montrose has 60 days to collect the signatures.
