Those supporting the recall were motivated by Corrao's participation in a meeting about city business in violation of the Alaska Open Meetings Act. Some members of the Petersburg City Council were not made aware of the meeting and it was not open to the public. Corrao also allegedly held meetings at the home of a city council member, again in violation of the Open Meetings Act.
