Recall appears to be on target with plenty of petition signatures to spare

CAVE CREEK – As Sonoran News went to press on Tuesday evening, the Cave Creek Caring Citizens political action committee (PAC) stated it has collected well more than the 293 valid signatures required to recall the four slate council members: Vice Mayor Adam Trenk and councilmen Mike Durkin, Reg Monachino and Charles Spitzer.

• Rancher battling BLM, Sen. Harry Reid, George Soros, China
• Former Chuy’s owner enters plea deal
• Tea Party Patriots sues IRS and Treasury for documents regarding 501(c)4 Regulations
• Obituary
• Abortion clinic inspection standards protect women
• Two leading senior advocacy groups join together



The pair, Trenkster and T.C.

The term coined by Rush Limbaugh, "low information voters" is as true here as in the rest of the nation. What petition collectors for challengers to the slate are hearing as they go door to door is about thirty percent who have no clue about what has and what is going on at town hall. They don't know Town Manager Usama Abujbarah was savagely fired for no reason by the slate (Adam Trenk, Reg Monachino, Mike Durkin and Charles Spitzer) led by Trenk, who used his majority to become Vice Mayor. Mayor Vincent Francia took a typical politician's position and let Trenk carry the day.
