Petitioners are set to start the recall effort against Councilman Mike Bonin over his road diet plan -- the DOT's removal of 9.4 miles of traffic lanes to prevent pedestrian deaths. Bonin announced in July that lanes would be restored and the plan ended in Vistia del Mar.
Petitioners need 27,000 signatures and claim to have raised over $100,000. Since he was just elected, they cannot start gathering until October. One of the petitioners is Mike Ryavec, who lost to Bonin in the last election in 2017.
