The first petition-signing event to recall Barberton Mayor Bill Judge kicked off at Decker Park July 13. Though a handful of signatures were collected, several people were unable to sign because they did not vote in the previous election, a requirement for the signature to be counted as valid.
According to Kim Trenary, the future dates and locations are as follows:
July 16- Tuscora Park 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
July 18- Edgewood Park 10 a.m.-noon.
July 20- Crissman Park 6 p.m.-7:30 p.m.
July 23- Breitenstine Park 6 p.m-7:30 p.m.
July 25- Avilee Webb Park 10 a.m-noon.
Jason Bica told the Herald, “I’m trying to bring change to the town. I want to see Barberton be the great city it once was.”
