California: Redondo Beach Councilmember recall makes the ballot

Signatures have been verified in the recall of Redondo Beach City Councilmember Zein Obagi Jr., apparently over his support for affordable housing and a homeless pallet shelter in his district, as well as claims of misconduct by the state bar. Obagi blames Cannabis dealers pushing to open dispensaries in the city for backing the recall (Catalyst Cannabis Co. has been the top funder).. Petitioners got 2452 valids and needed about 2250.

It is not clear when the recall would be voted on, as they are looking to get on the November 8 ballot, but also talking about a March 7 vote. It is unclear why either would happen, as it needs to be in 125 days.
