Omaha appears headed for a recall election after the Mayor Suttle Recall Committee turned in more than 37,000 signatures Nov. 19 in an attempt to remove Mayor Jim Suttle from office. The Douglas County Election Commission has until Dec. 4 to validate the signatures. The group needs 26,643 signatures from registered Omaha voters to force a recall election. Suttle says he will not resign. If the DCEC determines that the petitioners collected enough signatures, a recall election could be held as early as Jan. 25.
