2012 Recall efforts have begun

Discovery Bay neighborhoods have approval to proceed with their RECALL petition for Brian Dawson, Discovery Bay CSD Vice President. This first recall effort is a model for recalls planned in Contra Costa County by various neighborhood forums to bring governments back into service to the will and interests of residents.
Regional neighborhoods in and around Danville are using the DB Recall process to plan local efforts to allow voters to choose a new Town Council specifically focused on citizens' will and interests. Such efforts are part of a campaign to reduce political independence of elected officials from the regional residents. Part of that campaign will continue efforts to remove Mary Piepho from office and prevent Tomi van de Brooke, as Mary's close ally, from becoming District 2 Supervisor.
A story is now emerging for your reporting.
