INCLINE VILLAGE: An organized effort to recall Sara Schmitz and Matthew Dent, trustees for the Incline VIllage General Improvement District, has failed.
Of the required 1,801 valid signatures for each trustee, there were 1,726 for Dent and 1,687 for Schmitz, per the Nevada Secretary of State.
Schmitz and Dent declined to comment on the announcement.
Trish McKowen, who was part of the recall committee, told Moonshine Ink the final result was a surprise. She said they had collected 2,216 signatures for Schmitz and 2,140 for Dent, but that some were ultimately not recognized by Washoe County due to duplications, ineligible signatures, and the like. The committee is working with an attorney to understand what possibilities exist.
