California: First attempt to recall Stockton Councilman fails

An attempt to recall Councilman Jesus Andrade failed after only seven of ten signatures were handed in. There are a kitchen sink type of complaint over negligence of maintenance. Andrade claims that it supporters of former Mayor Anthony Silva who is leading the effort. The group is also targeting Mayor Michael Tubbs who beat Silva for the seat.

Former Councilman Ralph White is one of the lead petitioners. White led the 1984 recall effort against Councilman Mark Stebbins (who beat him in an election) in one of the weirdest recalls of all time.
