Craig Young and Tom Lindsey recall, Yorba Linda, California (2014)
Recall proponent arguments
Recall supporters cite as grounds for recall the targeted officials' decision not to consider a moratorium on new housing developing as city officials discussed lowering housing densities on the west side of the city.
In response to the recall effort, Lindsey said, "Any recall of council members does not change the law and will not address the issue for which Yorba Lindans thought they were signing. I am committed to fighting this recall and campaigning for re-election in November, because Yorba Linda needs a leader that will fight for its fiscal, legal and quality-of-life needs."
