A second recall effort has been started against Councilman Andrew Hamilton. The first one against Hamilton and other councilmembers over a road failed last year, though plenty of signatures were handed in. The petitioner claimed that Hamilton backed out of a discussion about a crosswalk, though the petition is about a vote in favor of contracting with the Orange County Animal, which has been criticized for a high-kill rate and dilapidated facilities. There's also a claim that he videotaped residents, looked to rezone a nursery and created aliases to post blogs about other councilmembers and created Facebook accounts with false information.
Petitioners would need 8834 signatures.
