Tennessee: Crossville Mayor Pro-Tem and Councilman facing petitions

Crossville Mayor Pro-Tem Pamala Harris and Councilman Danny Wyatt are facing petitions over their move to remove the City Manager (which failed 3-1) and their failure to support the Horizon Initiative (a cooperative agreement between numerous jurisdictions) over cost concerns.

Petitioners seem to be active in the local Tea Party. Apparently, the petition will require 33% of registered voters 2,135 signatures. It will be due by May 6 to get on the August 4 ballot and June 24 to get on the Election Day ballot. This is an appointed replacement race, and for removal, they need a 6% supermajority to succeed.
