The petitions start circulating today. If you are fed up with Omaha Mayor Mike Fahey, whether it be for his ill-advised, forcible and undemocratic annexations, his costly plans for a needless new ball park, or his overreaching desire to expand the grasp of city government, get out and sign a petition. Don't wait: 21,734 valid signatures are needed by April 22 to get the issue brought to a general vote.
Here are the initial locations where recall petitions will be available today: Rosenblatt Stadium parking lot. Memorial Park, and the Fraternal Order of Eagles No. 3943 in Elkhorn. I expect the Elkhorn location will be doing a land office business; there is no love lost on Mayor Fahey in that berg.
The old feeder doesn't live in Omaha, but I despise petty tyrants who pursue public service only to enrich their cronies with tax money. Mike Fahey is just such a man, and its time to kick him to the curb before he does more damage.
