FAIRBANKS, AK—Recall Dunleavy volunteers and staff will provide educational materials and updates to thousands of Alaskans at its booth during the Alaska Federation of Natives Convention, October 17-19, 2019.
“We’re pleased to have the opportunity to provide information about the recall process to supporters and hear from Alaskans who share concerns about the Governor’s actions in his first year in office,” said Barbara Donatelli, Senior Vice President of CIRI and Steering Committee member of the effort.
The Division of Elections will announce its decision to approve or deny the application that Recall Dunleavy effort submitted by November 4, 2019, or 60 days after the effort submitted 49,006 signatures to the Division of Elections. If denied, the decision will be made in court.
“We’ve seen a historic outpouring of bipartisan support from Alaskans in Fairbanks and statewide, and that momentum will only gain speed once we have permission to launch the second phase of signature gathering,” said Doug Tansy, a Fairbanks supporter and volunteer.
Recall Dunleavy encourages AFN attendees to stop by its booth and pledge to sign again in the Petition Phase. The community that submits the highest number of Petition Phase signature pledges (per capita) will win an exclusive Recall party for their community.
This communication was paid for by Recall Dunleavy, PO Box 210228, Anchorage, AK 99521. Meda DeWitt, chair, approved this message.
