Petition to Remove Filer Government Circulating
Filer, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV )-An effort is taking place in Filer to recall Mayor Rick Dunn and four city council members.
A Facebook page called “Recall Filer Mayor Rick Dunn” has more than one thousand likes. Now, residents are moving from their computers to paper and signing a petition. It all started with an incident on February 8th… In which officer Hassani, a Filer police officer, shot and killed a dog running at large. The dog’s owner Rick Clubb was hosting his son’s 9th birthday at the time, with the shooting taking place in his yard.
Officer Hassani has returned to duty after being put on administrative leave. Now, some residents are voicing their disapproval of the situation, and calling for officials to be recalled. April 7th marks ninety days into the mayor and city council members’ term in office and is the first day the petition can legally be circulated.
