Maryland: Recall changes debated as either too hard or too easy

Brunswick is debating a charter change to the recall which will require more reasons for a recall and a higher signature requirement. Currently, 170 out of 4000 registered voters need to sign to get the recall on the ballot (25% of turnout). The new change would make it 25% of registered voters

The charter change began after the failed effort to recall Mayor Karin Tome over her pay-as-you-throw garbage fee plan. Brunswick does have a history with recalls -- a mayor was tossed out in 1990.
