GONZALES, LA (WAFB) -

Signatures collected by a group that wants to recall a member of the Gonzales City Council should be verified Tuesday afternoon, according to officials.

The Ascension Parish Registrar of Voters is currently reviewing signatures for the petition to recall Councilman Gary Lacombe.

After those signatures are verified, the registrar will reportedly then get started on the recall efforts against Councilman Timothy Vessel.

Chuck LeBlanc, a co-chair of SaveGonzales, the group spearheading the recall effort, turned in 2,700 signatures on September 16.

SaveGonzales spent four months knocking on doors to collect signatures. It must have verified signatures from one-third of registered voters in Gonzales, which is around 2,100, to get a recall election.
