 An organizer of a recall campaign against Door County District 3 Supervisor Roy Engelbert says affidavits challenging the recall petition may violate the Open Meetings Act.  Six voters who signed the recall petition filed affidavits with the Door County Clerk's office saying they were not aware of the purpose of the petition.  Village of Forestville President Terry McNulty, who's one of the organizers of the recall efforts against Engelbert and District 2 County Supervisor John Neinas, says the affidavits were collected by other village officials and he believes the district attorney needs to look into the matter. 

McNulty also believes the petition language clearly stated the purpose was to recall Engelbert. left voicemail and email messages to Engelbert, who's also board chair for the Town of Forestville, Town Supervisor Jason Tlachac and Town Clerk Ruth Kerscher for comment.  No phone or email responses were received.
