The recall against a St. Martinville City Councilman has failed.

Petition organizers were 10 valid signatures short of the 347 needed to hold a recall election against District 3 Councilman Dennis Williams. Organizers turned in 428 signatures to get verified by the Registrar of Voters office. The Registrar removed 91 names from the list because some of the signatures were duplicated, some didn’t live in the district, some weren’t registered to vote, and some had a signature that didn’t match what was on file. The registrar said she used the precinct book from the last election to compare the signatures.
