Marinette mayor bans recall group from city hall


MARINETTE (AP) -- Marinette's mayor says a group trying to recall state Senator Dave Hansen is not allowed in city hall.

Those trying to recall the Democratic senator wanted to circulate petitions at Marinette City Hall as they're doing in Oconto and Green Bay. But, Mayor Bob Harbick says he doesn't want the same kind of disruption that's happened at the Capitol in Madison. Harbick says his decision is logical and non-partisan. The mayor also says he doesn't believe in what the group is trying to do.

Harbick tells the Marinette EagleHerald when someone is voted into office, he or she should be given the chance to do their job within the elected term.

The group trying to recall Hansen says it's doing so because the senator stayed in Illinois during the budget repair vote and failed to show up for work.
