A group which had been formed to recall Asbury Park Councilman Jesse Kendle did not meet the Aug. 3 deadline for the filing of a recall petition.
City Clerk Cindy Dye said this week that no petition had been submitted to her.
The Committee to Recall Jesse Kendle from the Office of Council consisted of Duanne Small, Mattison Avenue; Mabin Womble, Third Avenue and Brian Bass, Church Street.
The group needed to obtain 2,175 signatures in order to have the vote taken in a special election. The estimated cost of the election was $25,000.
Petitioner Duanne Small declined to comment on why the recall did not move forward.
Kendle is the council member who has the longest time to serve remaining.
The three seats up in November’s election are Deputy Mayor Amy Quinn and Councilwomen Yvonne Clayton and Eileen Chapman. Chapman was appointed earlier this year when Councilman Joe Woerner resigned due to his son’s illness.
Chapman has confirmed that she is running and has begun collecting the necessary signatures.
Quinn and Clayton also said they will seek reelection.
Candidates packets are now available a the city clerk’s office for those interested in running for a council seat.
The candidates petitions with the 100 required signatures are due back in the clerk’s office by 4 p.m. Tues, Sept. 6.
