Petitioners claim they have more than 2510 signatures to get a recall of Mayor Jasiel Correia II on the ballot. They are looking to get over 4000. Correia, who was arrested on federal wire and tax fraud charges for defrauding investors, has also faced a city council no confidence vote.
Fall River recalled and removed Mayor Will Flanagan in 2014. Flanagan is a potential candidate in a recall race.
