Recall laws

An effort to recall city council members Dave Cogdill and Jenny Kenoyer in Modesto, California from their positions was launched in March and April of 2014.[1][2] Recall petitioners did not turn in enough signatures to force a recall of either official.[3]

The effort to recall Kenoyer was revived again in early August 2014. Supporters did not gather enough signatures to move the recall forward.[4][5]

Recall proponent arguments

Modesto resident John P. Walker cited as grounds for recall Cogdill's votes to approve a contentious shopping center project and to include Salida and Wood Colony in the city's update to its general plan.[1] John Holsinger organized the recall effort against Kenoyer.[6]

On May 28, 2014, the Modesto City Clerk's Office approved the recall petitions against Cogdill and Kenoyer. Recall proponents had until September 24, 2014, to collect the signatures necessary to trigger a recall election. To recall Kenoyer, recall proponents needed to collect at least 3,363 valid signatures. To recall Cogdill, they needed to collect 3,184 signatures.[1][7] Both recall efforts failed to turn in the required number of valid signatures in order to bring the recall to a vote.[3]

Proponents started another recall against Kenoyer in early August. They needed to turn in 3,361 valid signatures by September 22 in order to force an election. Supporters only collected about 3,000 and did not submit them for verification.[4][5]
