According to an article in the San Gabriel Valley Tribune, a local businessman is considering leading a recall petition against three city council members in Baldwin Park. Rose Fellow Doug Johnson was quoted on the difficulty of recall elections:
“It’s very hard,” said Douglas Johnson, a fellow with the Rose Institute of State and Local Government. “Very few recalls ever make it to the ballot. It takes money and it takes a lot of lawyers.”
Johnson estimated less than a quarter of recalls that start actually end up on the ballot.
