Lake Elsinore Councilman Daryl Hickman is facing recall petitions, with proponents having until Aug. 23 to get 3,298 signatures. To get on the November ballot, the signatures will have to be certified by August 10, therefore, it would have to be handed in a month earlier.
One of the criticisms of Hickman is that he supported the recall effort of then-Councilman Thomas Buckley. Buckley survived the February 2010 election, but lost to Hickman by just 17 votes in the City Council election for two seats, with Brian Tisdale receiving the most votes.
The big fight has been over Hickman's vote to fire City Manager Bob Brady.
