Rhode Island: Cranston Mayor subject of recall discussion following "ticketgate"

Cranston Mayor Allan Fung is facing recall threats over his actions after a police ticket writing blitz in the district of two councilmembers who voted against a police contract.

The Council President John Lanni has looked into the recall -- petitioners would need 11,000 signatures in 90 days (plus it seems a turnout of 2/3rd of the voters), so he is not pursuing it. The election would be estimated to cost $30,000.
