Recall Petitions Fail to Qualify for Ballot

SUISUN CITY — The Solano County Registrar of Voters found that the recall petitions for Mayor Pete Sanchez, Councilmember Jane Day and Councilmember Mike Hudson lack sufficient valid signatures to qualify for a recall election, Suisun City Deputy City Clerk Donna Pock announced today.

City Clerk Linda Hobson requested the Registrar of Voters validate each signature submitted on the petitions to ensure the most accurate and fair assessment of the petitions for all parties involved. For a petition to be sufficient to qualify as a ballot measure, it needed to contain valid signatures of at least 2,013 — or 20% — of registered City voters.

The results of the canvass are as follows:
  • Petition seeking recall of Mayor Sanchez contained 1,907 valid signatures.
  • Petition seeking recall of Councilmember Day contained 1,852 valid signatures.
  • Petition seeking recall of Councilmember Hudson contained 1,894 valid signatures.
Under California elections law, no further action by the governing body is required if the petitions are certified as being insufficient.
