Hello, this is Kathy Carssow. I volunteer on the Homer Recall Dunleavy campaign.  In just 3 weeks, over 11 hundred voters on the Southern Kenai Peninsula signed the petition to put the recall question before Alaska voters.  Now Recall Dunleavy has launched “Sign At Home,” a safe and remote way for you to join us in putting Alaska back on track.

About 200 residents of the Homer area turned out on leap year day to sign on the dotted line in a statewide effort to recall Governor Michael Dunleavy. Signers represented the full political spectrum if the logos on their gear is any indication. They showed up in jackets embroidered with mining company logos, rifle scopes, Grateful Dead skulls and the names of their favorite fishing charters and some came to sign wearing basic Homer fleece. Volunteers wore matching Recall Dunleavy t-shirts. Organizers are headquartered in a cabin on Lake Street in downtown Homer.

Kenai Peninsula residents traveled from as far away as Soldotna in hopes of recalling Alaska Governor Mike Dunleavy. Organizers from Homer set up tables in WKFL Park on Thursday, August 1. Between 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. they collected over 400 signatures. KBBI's Kathleen Gustafson attended the rally to ask the people in attendance why they want to recall Alaska's Governor.
