Recall proponents mailing letters and petitions to city voters

Letters promoting the recall of council members Danny Wyatt and Pamala Harris are being mailed to registered Crossville city voters along with copies of the two petitions that need 2225 registered Crossville city voter's signatures by June 24 in order to get the recall question on the November ballot.

The letters are signed as "Crossville Citizens for Good Government, Howard Burnette, Jr. Treasurer and include a self addressed stamped envelope for them to be returned.

The letters include statements saying that Wyatt and Harris "took away Crossville citizen's rights to make public comments or ask questions until after the council has already voted on any issue or resolution."

The letter talks about scheduling called meeting during the day and on short notice and doing away with the monthly work sessions.  The letter concludes by claiming that because the work sessions have been eliminated, that "the city's business gets discussed in secret conversations and in violation of the states open meeting laws."

The letter asks the recipient to sign the petitions and get their friends and neighbors to sign as well and return them in the envelope provided.  An image of the full letter is below.

The recall proponents have not responded to questions concerning how many signatures they have collected so far.  If petitions are turned in to the election commission they do become a public record.
