California: Placerville Mayor and Council facing recall effort

The recall effort against Placerville Mayor Dennis Thomas has now been expanded to include recalls against Vice Mayor Kara Taylor and Council members Patricia Borelli and Michael Saragosa. While the recall seems to be a kitchen sink of complaints about growth and the now-common homelessness problem, the big issue seems to be a debate over removing a noose on the city's logo (the town was known as Hangtown during the Gold Rush). The council voted to remove it and there seems to be repeated mention of "heritage" in the discussion. 

Petitioners need 1672 signatures by October 11.
