Councilman Edward Kabacinski is facing petitions after voting against a settlement in a lawsuit filed by companies seeking marijuana licenses. The council wants to limit the licenses to 15 but investors want 28. The vote was 5-2.
Petitioners would need at about 3000 signatures to get on the ballot. Kabacinski has also faced other questions, including a misdemeanor assault and impersonating a public officer charges after handcuffing a woman for putting Black Lives Matters stickers on Trump signs and spraying him with silly string.
Update: Wording on one of the petitions has been approved, while the other was rejected on factualness/clarity grounds, though petitioners are claiming that the vote was on partisan grounds.
