The CRG Network, backers of failed (or aborted) recall efforts in Wauwatosa and Cudahy, not to mention the failed effort to recall Gov. Jim Doyle, have announced they’ve been contacted to provide assistance to form a citizens group to explore the possibility of a recall effort against City of Milwaukee Third District Alderman Nik Kovac. The possible recall is being promoted by Matthew Davis, a resident of Milwaukee’s Third Aldermanic District, who cited Kovac’s sponsoring of a Rental Property Inspection ordinance that is perceived as a both a “backdoor tax” on renters and potential violations of constitutionally protected privacy and property rights.

It’ll be interesting to see if the recall effort against Ald. Kovac gains any momentum, but I’m betting this recall effort will end much like similar efforts in Wauwatosa and Cudahy.

  1. Jim says:

    CRG running around trying to recall every government official they don’t like is really disturbing.
    But what is most important is the government being completely hamstrung, right? CRG is almost anarchistic when it comes to their view of the role of government.

    Wow. This will probably get even less traction than their failed attempts to organize an effort against Jim Sullivan or Ryan McCue. People using the threat of a recall when they don’t like something their elected reps did lost its caliber a long time ago.

    Does Mr. Davis have any interest in the real estate market?

    What about Orville Seymer’s real estate holdings?

      Jason, I have no doubt this will end up as yet another failure by CRG, a group that hasn’t had a lick of success since the Milwaukee County recalls that led to wholesale replacement of the County Board of Supervisors and Scott Walker as County Executive.

      Since then it’s been a string of failures, making me wonder why anyone takes CRG seriously.
