As next Tuesday's recall election nears, here's a look at what groups are doing to try to sway voters:
Citizens for Omaha's Future: The pro-recall group led by possible mayoral candidate David Nabity mailed fliers to voters telling them to “Vote Yes to recall Mayor Jim Suttle.” The group also bought radio and television ads.
Forward Omaha: The group campaigning to keep Suttle in office began putting out yard signs Monday that say, “Vote NO January 25.” The group also urged supporters to post the sign's logo on social networking sites. The group also is running a phone bank.
The Mayor Suttle Recall Committee: The group's leaders, mostly property owners and restaurateurs, continue to make public statements and appearances and use social networking sites to encourage Suttle's removal. But the committee's co-chairman, Jeremy Aspen, said Nabity's group is handling the election campaign.
The Committee to Keep Omaha Moving Forward: The group started by Omaha businessman and philanthropist Dick Holland is no longer actively campaigning.
Taxpayers Putting Omaha First: The latest anti-recall group, announced Tuesday, lists three members: Aaron Hanson, president of the Omaha police union; Mike Dowd, an attorney who represents the union; and attorney Dan Stockmann.
Hanson said the group is separate from the police union, which has taken no official stand on the recall, but the new group's announcement said it has raised 25 percent of its funds from members of the police union. Hanson said the group launched radio commercials in support of retaining Suttle and is sending mailers.
Political parties: Neither the Nebraska Republican Party nor the Nebraska Democratic Party is campaigning for or against the recall, though the Democrats are providing some assistance to Forward Omaha.
