The long-running attempt to recall Mayor Ruben Bermudez finally failed, with no petitions handed in. Petitioners needed 9.447 registereds. In June, petitioners won a lawsuit that extended the deadline to gather by 75 days. This lawsuit was over the unconstitutionality of a provision that required signature gatherers to live in the district or jurisdiction where the recall will occur. At that time, petitioners claimed to have 5,119 signatures.
