Petitions have been filed against Mayor Samuel Parham and councilman (and former mayor) W. Howard Myers by "Clean Sweep Petersburg." The group had previously said they were going to go after city Treasurer Kevin Brown, but it is not clear why he was no included.
Virginia requires a recall trial and a showing of cause. Petitioners would need 10% of turnout to get to that stage. The article notes that there is a bill in the legislature which would double the signature total to 20%.
