Wilmot voters will consider an initiative on the November general election ballot to remove Mayor Clinton Harris from office.
The recall procedure required 89 signatures of qualified electors to have the recall placed on the ballot. A petition bearing 109 names was submitted and the Ashley County Clerk’s office verified 92 of those to be qualified electors, according to the Ashley County Clerk’s Office.
No reason for the recall is required and none was provided. An employee in the Ashley County Clerk’s office who provided Seark Today with the petition numbers said she doesn’t know the reason.
Harris has two years remaining on his 4-year term.
