Petitions to conduct a recall campaign against Mayor Ken Murphy were taken out Monday.
The Committee to Recall Mayor Murphy has until April 8 to collect 772 signatures of registered voters in Payson to force an election in May, according to Town Clerk Silvia Smith.
As reported last week, the committee’s leadership would rather see Murphy resign, but they want to be ready for a recall if it is needed.
Chairing the Committee to Recall Mayor Murphy are Carol McCraney and Gordon Metcalf. McCraney can be reached at 472-9947 for more information.
