Maine: Waterville Councilor recall gets the signatures

Petitioners handed in enough signatures to get the recall of newly appointed Councilor John O'Donnell (D) on the ballot. O'Donnell is a former council member who was appointed to fill a vacancy and one of the other candidates, Libertarian Jay Coelho, pushed for the recall. The recall may be scheduled for the June 12 ballot.

Mayor Nick Isgro (R) is also facing a recall effort over a tweet criticizing survivors of the Parkland School shooting. Petitioners need 857 signatures to get Isgro's recall on the ballot. The O'Donnell recall is thought to be a"fight fire with fire" attempt to ward off the Isgro recall.
