Petitioners trying to recall City Commissioner Patte Atkins-Grad, who was recently acquitted for trading votes to developers, claim to have collected 1,370 signatures. They need 1,250. There is a second round of signatures needed, but not sure what that total will be. Note also:
If the movement is successful, it will be the first recall in Broward County. There was a move years ago to oust a mayor in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea, but organizers could not get enough signatures.
