The Board of the Coastside Fire Protection District decided tonight to hold the recall election for directors Alifano, Macintosh, and Riddell on April 9, 2013. The Board was required to choose a day from eight-eight to one hundred and twenty-five days in the future. April 9th represents the last Tuesday in this allowable range, one hundred and nineteen days from today.
If a new, temporary CalFire contract is not agreed to that will leave only eighty-three days from the election to the end of CalFire’s existing term, putting tremendous pressure on the board majority’s plans to replace CalFire with a standalone fire department.
Voters will be able to vote both in-person and by mail-in ballot.
We’ll have the video tomorrow.
