West Virginia: Petitions taken out against Fairmont Councilman for racist comments

Petitions have now been taken out against Fairmont Councilman David Kennedy 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 had to redo the wording to get it approved. They will need 2461 signatures (20% of registered voters).
