Baxter mayor’s supporters seek to recall her opponents on the Council

BAXTER SPRINGS, Kan. — Supporters of Mayor Jenifer Bingham are circulating petitions to recall four members of the Baxter Springs City Council opposed to her.

The petitions seek to recall Council members Gary Allen, Robert St. Clair, Ed McCafee and Ron Costlow.

The petition cites grounds for recalling them as violations of the Kansas open-meetings law. Kevin Cure, an attorney hired by the Council members to represent their interests, said they petition circulators have no evidence or basis for the claim.
