West Virginia: Fairmont Councilman facing petitions for racist comments

Councilman David Kennedy is facing a petition following repeated comments alleged to be racist and derogatory against LGBTQ+ people, some in Facebook posts. Kennedy has been censured by the council (6-3 vote) and has faced calls for his resignation.

Petitioners are waiting for approval and say they need between 1500 and 2000 signatures (Update: the number is 2461) The article claims that the petition is to remove Kennedy's name from the November 2020 ballot, though I'm uncertain how that works.
