Recall tactics are unacceptable
Just to the east of Littleton, intimidating behavior is going on in State House District 37 by the people collecting signatures to recall Rep. Tom Sullivan. Recently, a friend encountered petitioners at the grocery store, and when she stepped in to talk to passersby about why they should decline to sign, the petitioners called her a terrorist and she was told that, if she didn’t have a gun, she could get shot.
The petition effort is backed by Rocky Mountain Gun Owners (RMGO). Do they approve of these tactics? Signatures are being solicited to oust a duly elected lawmaker for fulfilling his campaign promises. They want a redo. They want to waste taxpayer money to do it. This isn’t what recalls are for.
Threatening residents with violence is unacceptable and intolerable. How long before these tactics are unleashed on Littleton voters when an elected official supports legislation that some group does not like? If you want new representation, there’s an election for that next year, and it won’t cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars.
