California: Redding City Council members hearing recall threats over increased service costs
Following two pay raises and increases in utilities, garbage, sewer and water services, there's talk and a Facebook page touting the recall of Redding City Council members. Mayor Brent Weaver and council members Kristen Schreder, Francie Sullivan would be the only ones who could face a recall immediately, with councilmembers Adam McElvain and Julie Winter not up for recall until they serve 90 days. Petitioners would need 15% of registereds -- 7615 signatures in 160 days. There were attempts for recalls in 2012 and 2009, though both failed to turn in signatures.
