FREMONT, Neb. (AP) - A Fremont man who filed a petition last week to recall the eastern Nebraska city’s mayor has filed a new petition to recall his city councilman.

LaVern Kucera, who ran for mayor last year but lost to Scott Getzschman, filed a recall affidavit Sept. 24 against Getzschman. Kucera accuses Getzschman of trying to stop implementation of a city ordinance that bars property owners from renting homes to immigrants living in the country illegally.

The Fremont Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1sLKoBl ) that on Monday, Kucera filed a recall affidavit against Ward 2 Councilman Larry Johnson, citing similar reasons regarding the city’s immigration ordinance.

Kucera also says a group of people in town plans to file recall affidavits against the city’s other three council members.
