An effort to recall city council members Garrett Mancieri and Melissa Murray in Woonsocket, Rhode Island from their positions was launched in March 2014.[1] The recall did not go to a vote.[2]

Recall proponent arguments

Recall proponents accused the targeted council members of "not listening to taxpayers, and supporting programs the city cannot afford, such as full-day kindergarten."[1]

An affidavit seeking the recall of Mancieri and Murray was first filed with the board of canvassers on March 12, 2014. Recall proponents needed to collect signatures equaling at least 10 percent of registered voters in order to trigger a recall election.[1]

On May 12, 2014, the deadline for submitting the signatures required to move the recall effort forward, the committee responsible for organizing the effort announced that they had fallen short of their goal and that the recall would not go to a vote.[2]
