California: Hesperia Mayor Pro Tem recall effort fails

The petitions to recall Hesperia City Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem Bill Holland has failed. The recall was over an investigation into a hazing incident at a high school, though this article notes that he has been a supporter of development interests and that may have caused issues. Councilman Jeremiah Brosowske is accused of being one of the supporters of the recall effort, and now he was threatened with a potential recall by a supporter of Holland.

Holland was originally elected in an at-large seat, but they changed the city to a district based system, which dropped the signature amount to one-fifth of what was previously needed.

Petitioners needed 1786 signatures. They handed in 1830, but only got 1168 valid signatures.
