Recall Election for Ebert Metro Dist. Board Member Murray Hawthorne

In mid-November, the Denver Office of the Clerk and Recorder received a recall petition for board member Murray Hawthorne of the Ebert Metropolitan District in Green Valley Ranch. Mr. Hawthorne challenged the petition and a hearing was held on December 11, 2023. On December 12, 2023, Denver Hearing Officer Macon Cowles dismissed Hawthorne's protest on grounds that the recall petition did not contain any profane or false statements. 

Hon. Clerk Paul López issued a final statement of sufficiency(PDF, 126KB) setting the election date for February 13, 2024. The recall ballot was certified(PDF, 200KB) on December 29, 2023. Ballots will be mailed to eligible voters on January 22, 2024. Voters will decide if Ebert Metropolitan Director Murray Hawthorne will be recalled and will have the opportunity vote for successor candidate Khadija K. Haynes, should Director Murray Hawthorne be recalled.
