Hailey Petition Drive Continues In Longview

The movement is continuing to have a Longview city council member recalled. The petition has been going on for almost four weeks to oust embattled councilwoman, Karen Hailey. Those circulating the petitions say they are seeing a positive response and will make a trip to city hall after they've gathered 22-hundred signatures.

"We're taking and we're validating the signatures before we turn them over to the city, and as you see we got quite a lot, the validation is lengthy so it's taking time, but we're doing quite well," said petition supporter, Betty Graham. To force a recall election, a little over 13-hundred signatures are needed on the petition.
