We are now going to get a chance to see a recall trial in action, as petitioners have met the signature requirement to put a recall against Norfolk Treasurer Anthony Burfoot on the ballot. Petitioners got 4670 signatures, they needed 4656. Petitioner handed in about 6500 signatures. No date has been set for the trial.
Burfoot (elected in 2013) has been indicted for kickbacks when he was a councilman. Retired Circuit Judge James D'Alton will preside.
