Rhode Island: State Supreme Court allows Providence Councilman recall effort to move forward
Providence Councilman Kevin Jackson's attempt to get the state Supreme Court to toss out the recall effort against him failed. Jackson's petition was rejected by the Superior Court, and the Supreme Court declined the appeal. Petitioners got the 300 signatures needed to start the effort, and now need 2100 signatures (20%) to get on the ballot.
