Question: Should section be amended to provide that the nomination and election of a person to succeed a person removed by recall shall be held 180 days after the date of the recall election and conducted in the same manner as provided “for other Municipal elections under this Charter”?

Proposed Language:

§ 21     Result of Recall Election

If a majority of the votes cast on the question of recalling a member of the Council or Mayor shall be against his recall he shall continue in office for the remainder of his unexpired term, but subject to recall as before. If a majority of the votes be for the recall of the member indicated on the ballots he shall, regardless of any defect in the recall petition, be deemed removed from office. When a person is removed from office by recall, Council shall immediately provide for the nomination and election of his successor for the unexpired term by fixing the time of the elections. The nomination and election of a person to succeed a person so removed shall be held within one hundred and eighty days after the date of the recall election and shall be conducted in the same manner as provided for other Municipal elections under this Charter.
