California: Yorba Linda recall gets on the ballot

Mayor Craig Young and Councilman Tom Lindsey will face a recall, after petitioners handed in over 8,100 signatures. The issue is their refusal to consider a moratorium on new housing development. The two joined one other council member in approving 51 townhouses on 5 acres, and 80 three story townhouses. The third candidate was not targeted, apparently because they thought he could raise more money. The approval of the housing developments followed two ballot measures that boosted housing density.

Both Lindsey and Young are up for reelection in November. Here's Lindsey attacking the recall as a waste of money.
