All seven Morgantown Council members, M. Joe Abu Ghannam, Bill Kawecki, Ixva Vega, Jennifer Selin, Danielle Trumble, Dave Hashbarger and Brian Butcher, are facing recall petitions. Petitioners need about 4000 signatures (20% of turnout) to get to the ballot for each. The issues include complaints over new personnel rules opposed by the police and fire unions and complaints about council opposition to a "Big Guns" store.
Petitioners also want to change term limits and align the elections with general election dates.
Update: Here's an editorial opposing the recall effort.
