California: Stockton mayor facing recall threats
Mayor Anthony Silva is facing recall threats six months after his election, due to what columnist Michael Fitzgerald (in a good, detailed look) calls the "unhinged way Silva is performing." Stockton is currently in bankruptcy proceedings.
Petitioners would need 18,000 signatures in 160 days.. Note that the last mayoral recall in Stockton was in 1967 (Jimmy Rishwain).
