The recall effort against Reading Select Board Chair Vanessa Alvarado has received enough signatures to get on the ballot, but it is now running into scheduling issues due to the coronavirus. Alvardo is also claiming that the signatures were fraudulently obtained. 2239 valids were submitted, petitioners needed 1998 to get on the ballot.
The issue seems to be questions regarding the search for a new police chef. The leader of the petition driver was former Select Board member John Arena (who lost to Alvarado two years ago).
