Months after the state signed the recall law into force, Mayor Billy McHone is facing a recall vote. Petitioners handed in 441 signatures, they got 369 and needed 343. McHone resigned from office in January and changed his mind within the day. The issue seemed to be an ordinance that restricted firearms within 1000 feet of an occupied building and banning the use of high velocity targets.
McHone claims the real debate is over his budget policy. He's been mayor for 6 years.
