Why is there a recall happening?
Petitioners sought a low-turnout recall election for Ward 5 Councilmembers in an effort to overturn a fair election that they lost. Had the petitioners returned their signatures earlier, a wasteful special recall election would have cost Broomfield taxpayers nearly $80,000.
Why should you question this recall effort?
Individuals in Ward 5 have complained that while collecting signatures, petition circulators made false statements to voters.
When a hearing officer asked them to testify under oath about their falsehoods they refused, saying they feared “incriminating” themselves.
We'll be voting NO, will you?
The question “Should Councilmember Cohen be recalled?” will be a yes or no question on the November ballot. Please vote NO.
What happens if the recall succeeds?
If Councilmember Cohen is recalled, a petition circulator with a long record of divisive statements and extreme political views contrary to Broomfield's best interests could be sworn into office and serve until 2025.
