Virginia: James City County Board of Supervisors Chairman facing recall threats

James City County Board of Supervisors Chairman Jim Kennedy is facing recall threats over the recent firing of  the County Administrator. The firing was voted on in a party line vote, with all three Republicans casting votes to ax the City Administrators.

There are also some other allegations against Kennedy, including clashing with police outside of his restaurant, where he allegedly suggested that the cops shoot teenagers involved.

Because this is under Virginia's odd recall trial law, petitioners would need 217 signatures (10% of turnout), and then it would be up to a court to decide whether the official should be removed.
