Jan Kulmann, a city councilor of Thornton’s Ward 4, who was facing a recall effort from anti-fracking group, North Metro Neighbors for Safe Energy, will not be subject to a recall election this year.
According to the Denver Business Journal, the effort from North Metro Neighbors group has all but “fizzled,” out.
In an e-mail to The Statesman, Todd Barnes, the City of Thornton’s communication director, indicated that the petitioners failed to submit a petition by the city’s May 31 deadline. “We have no information as to how short — if they were even short — the number of necessary signatures because nothing was submitted. We received nothing,” Barnes’ e-mail indicated.
