California: Atwater School Trustee recall set for October 16

Atwater school trustee Sheila Whitley is facing a recall vote on October 16, due to her part in the firing of the school district Superintendent. 

Note that the California prevents the refusal to schedule a recall that has plagued so many other jurisdictions.  The trustees deadlocked on setting a recall date.
State Elections Code rules say if a school board doesn't issue an election order within an allowed time frame, the registrar of voters must do it within five days.
The recall is estimated to cost $18,000 to $20,000. Apparently. logistical issues prevent combining the recall with the November general.
