Effort To Recall Huron Mayor Ends

HURON, SD -
An effort to recall Huron Mayor Dave McGirr has ended because petition circulators didn't collect enough valid signatures.
City Finance Officer Paullyn Carey reported that 344 signatures were declared invalid, dropping the number of valid ones to 1,128 - 139 short of the number needed to prompt a recall election.
Opponents of the mayor believe former police chief Doug Schmitt had his rights violated when he was put on administrative leave following comments he made to a Legislature committee studying a bill dealing with illegal immigration. Schmitt ultimately retired.
McGirr says he hopes that the city can now move forward on efforts to improve the community.
