GONZALES, LA (WAFB) - A group looking to recall a Gonzales City Council member turned in 2,700 signatures Tuesday morning.
Chuck LeBlanc, a co-chair of SaveGonzales, turned in the signatures to Ascension Parish Registrar Robert Poche in the effort to recall Councilman Gary Lacombe.
"We accomplished this mainly because the citizens and the voters of this little city signed that petition," LeBlanc said. "They want a change. With that many names, they're telling you they want a change. They want something done."
Poche has 15 days to verify the signatures. Citizens have five days to remove their names from the petition, unless those signatures are certified in less than five days. If verified, the petition will go to Gov. Bobby Jindal for inclusion on the December 6 ballot.
