Ohio: Cleveland Councilman facing recall efforts; move by council to make recalls more difficult

Councilman Basheer Jones is facing a recall effort after less than seven months in office. Petitioners need 676 signatures to get on the ballot. Jones won office by defeating Councilman TJ Dow by 13 votes.

City Council President Kevin Kelley is looking to tighten recall laws, potentially increasing thea grace period from 3 months to a six and preventing a recall in the last year in office.
