Petition aims to recall St. Landry councilman
A recall petition has been filed against St. Landry Parish Councilman Ronald E. Buschel.
The Feb. 1 filing starts the 180-day period in which the recall committee has to get at least 1,436 signatures of registered voters from Buschel's district to force a recall election.
The petition does not specify the reason for the proposed recall.
Buschel says he did not know about the move to oust him from office.
If the petition gets the required signatures, Buschel says he'll deal with it at that time.
