California: Redding Vice Mayor and Councilwoman facing recall effort
Vice Mayor Kristen Schreder and Councilwoman Francie Sullivan are facing a recall effort that may not get on the ballot until 2018. Petitioners need 9857 signatures (interestingly, the town has 49,285 voters -- if they had 50,000 the total would have dropped to 7500). The recall is allegedly about raises and a lack of concern for public safety, though the failed passage of two public safety tax measures may play a role.
