There are a lot of recall efforts in California, not just for governors
While all eyes were on Governor Gavin Newsom, a developer in Sonoma County was moving forward with an effort to recall the district attorney who sued his company.
Across California, other officers were also facing recall campaigns. A member of the Fallbrook Union High School District Board of Trustees. A councilor in Kingsburg. A councilor in Morgan Hill. Mayors of Huntington Beach and Placerville, Council Members in Huntington Beach and Placerville, School Boards or Education Board Members in Chico, Santa Monica, Cupertino, Sunnyvale, Elk Grove and Oh My Goodness, Are You Tired Yet?

Mr. Gallaher, who has said the recall is in service of “the stable, capable leadership overseeing public safety in our county”, has moderated the campaign himself.
The second is a complex saga involving William Davis and Melissa Ybara, who are on City Council in Vernon and supported a successful recall campaign this year against two other council members who supported the solar and wind power project, which The developer was involved in one. embezzlement investigation
Now they’re recalled council members, Diana Gonzales and Carol Menke, are backing the new recall campaign, alleging – according to The Los Angeles Daily News – that Ms. Ybarra is nepotism as the city’s housing commissioner. and Mr. Davis is mentally incapacitated. Ms Ybarra and Mr Davis say the campaign is just retaliation.
