A recall election has been scheduled against Richwood Mayor Gerald Brown on December 11. Petitioners handed in 462 valid signatures. They needed 381.
Brown blames supporters of the previous Mayor Ed Harris for the recall, as well as Aldermen Wysinger Cleveland, Wilbert Reed Jr. and Alderwoman Leola Keys. Harris was apparently banned from holding office due to malfeasance. He is now once again eligible. In the article, there doesn't seem to be a particular reason for the recall.
