Anthony Traficanti, John McNally and David Ludt recall, Mahoning County, Ohio (2010)
The Fraternal Order of Police is behind the recall effort. They are upset because county budget cuts are requiring the county's sheriff to lay off a third of his staff and close half the county jail.
The recall was ultimately abandoned. As of January 2011, the commissioners of Mahoning County are John McNally, Carol Rimedio-Righetti and Anthony Traficanti.
