Massachusetts: Fall River Councilman looking for different method to remove Mayor who lost recall, won replacement seat

After losing Mayor Jasiel Correira lost a recall vote this week, but winning the replacement race, the City Councilor Shawn Cadime is pushing to find a different method to remove Correia. Following the election, Correia is being accused of removing two people who ran against him in the replacement race, School Committee Vice Chairman Mark Costa and School Committee member Paul Coogan.

Cadime claims that the Home Rule Charter gives that if there are seven votes to remove by the City Council, the Council President would become acting mayor. It sounds like the City Attorney disagrees with this interpretation.
