A group that wants to recall La Crosse's city council president claims it has more than enough signatures to schedule a special election.
The 'Restore La Crosse' Committee reports it has more than 250 signatures from the 11th council district on petitions to recall president Audrey Kader. Only 158 signatures were needed. They'll have to be verified by the city. Kader has been targeted for recall because of recent controversial actions by the city council, including plans to eliminate the monthly public hearings at Committee of the Whole meetings.
