Maryland: Brunswick council proposes removing recall law

The Brunswick city council is considering removing its recall law or changing it for a potentially higher signature requirement plus a separate replacement race. Currently, Brunswick has a 25% voter turnout signature requirement. The bill would change it to 15% of registered voters (a high figure). The prime backer claims that Brunswick is the only municipality that has a single recall and replacement vote (which would seem to save money).

The issue seems to be an attempt to recall Mayor Karin Tome over a proposed "pay-as-you-throw" trash collection law.
