Rhode Island: Pawtucket Mayor facing recall threats
Following a failed attempt to defeat Mayor Don Grebien's reelection with a write-in campaign, Grebien is now being threatened with a recall. Since he was just elected, Grebien has 3 months from the start of his new term.
Unions are leading the charge, with the primary issue bein Grebien movie to privatize trash services in the city, and claims that he will outsource any department.
Petitioners need 10% of turnout (about 2,200 signatures) in 60 days.
