David Koontz and Mike Zita recall, Norton, Ohio (2010)
In December 2010, a local newspaper reported that the recall effort had "lost steam" and had also missed several crucial deadlines.
Tim Arbogast and Dennis Pierson were leaders with the recall effort. Pierson said, "There is no checks-and-balance system in the city, because the council president goes along with everything the mayor comes up with. They need to know that they serve the people, not the other way around."
