Sussex Residents Rally for Recall Signatures
Profanity and chilly temperatures won't keep these picketers indoors.
Wednesday night’s bitterly cold temperatures didn’t stop residents from dusting off their signs, pulling out their clipboards and standing outside Sussex Village Hall to gather Gov. Scott Walker recall signatures.
Emil Glodoski and Peggy Tennessen were two of the handful of people luring passers-by into the Village Hall parking lot to get people to sign the recall forms. However, not everyone seemed happy with their efforts.
While talking with Glodoski on the sidewalk on Main Street, a pickup truck sped by while the passenger screamed, “(Explicit) you!” out the window.
“God bless them,” Glodoski calmly said in response. As the president of the Pauline Haass Public Library Board of Trustees, he began packing up his things and making his way toward the library for that evening's board meeting.
Over at the makeshift signing area, Tennessen called out to people walking out of the library in hopes of getting more signatures. In total, the group gathered 100 signatures Tuesday night and about 80 on Wednesday.
The group started luring in residents on Main Street across from Piggly Wiggly at 3 p.m. and continued well after dark.
“We’ll keep doing this every day – EVERY day until he’s gone,” Tennessen said.
