Tennessee: Memphis County Commissioner facing petitions
County Commission Chairman Mike Ritz is facing a proposed recall from the county GOP for his support of a sales tax increase, a property tax increase as well as a million dollar lawsuit filed by the commission against municipalities over the schools. Petitioners need over 20,000 signatures in 75 day. Adding another layer of difficulty, the recall would then require 50% turnout.
