LAWRENCE (CBS) – Leaders of the effort to get Lawrence Mayor William Lantigua recalled are confident they will have enough signatures by next week’s deadline, in spite of efforts by the mayor to stop residents from signing the petitions.
Recall leader Reverend Edwin Rodriguez says they got the word out that it was okay to sign any petition they wanted.
He now feels confident they will have more than enough signatures they need by Monday to force an election.

Rodriquez was at City Hall Monday to submit a request that observers be on hand when they turn in those petitions. He says he doesn’t trust everyone in the election office.
Rodriguez says he received threats since starting the recall effort.
5200 signatures are needed to force a recall election.
