Three San Bernardino City Officials Facing Recall

The effort to recall every City of San Bernardino elected official, that turned into a recall effort of the officials not up for election this year, has become a recall effort against three.

The San Bernardino County Registrar of Voters yesterday validated that enough signatures had been gathered against City Councilmembers John Valdiva and Wendy McCammack, and against City Attorney Jim Penman to call a Recall Election.

To force a recall election against John Valdivia 2,355 signatures from registered voters in his City Council Ward were required.  2,698 valid signatures were collected.

To force a recall election against Wendy McCammack 3,021 signatures from registered voters in her City Council Ward were required. 3,141 were collected.

To force a recall election against Jim Penman 11,588 signatures from registered voters in the City of San Bernardino were required. 11,855 were collected.

The recall effort against City Councilman Chas Kelley fell short. 3,677 signatures from voters in his Council Ward were required. Only 2,351 were collected.

However the recall effort does have an additional 30 days to attempt to gather sufficient signatures against Councilman Kelley.
