California: Signature verified against Foster City Vice Mayor -- Recall scheduled for March 3

Foster City Vice Mayor Herb Perez looks like he will face a vote, as election officials verified enough signatures to get on the ballot. Petitioners handed in 4380 and got 3913. They needed 3314. The recall claims that it is about complaints about his conduct and "pro development agenda." Perez claims the issue is housing.

The city is looking to hold the recall on the statewide primary day, March 3, 2020. However, it may end up being a special election (the difference in cost could be between $71,900-$86,280 for the primary day and $257,905-$309,486 for a special).

Update: The Recall has been scheduled for March 3 -- it will be the first in the city since 1977.
