Board certifies Hanson recall election
June 18, 2013 — Will Lassen County District 5 Supervisor Jack Hanson serve out the remainder of his term (which ends Jan.5, 2015) or will a new candidate be elected in the recall election?
The fate of the district 5 supervisor’s seat is now in the hands of the district’s voters.
Lassen County Clerk Julie Bustamante said she has tentatively scheduled the recall election for Tuesday, Sept. 10.
Bustamante said approximately 2,500 voters will answer two questions — first should Hanson be recalled (yes or no), and second (if the majority of voters seek his recall), which candidate shall serve the remainder of his term. If a majority of voters seek Hanson’s recall, the candidate who collects the most votes will be elected, regardless of how many seek the office.
