Those making an effort to recall County Supervisor Brooks Firestone took their first big step forward last Friday when prominent local Democrat Brett Wagner served the 3rd District Supervisor with official papers signaling the kick-off of the recall campaign. Wagner – who hopes to eventually replace Brooks – must gather more than 7,500 signatures from 3rd District residents in order to get the recall on the November ballot. Wagner dropped out of the 24th District congressional race last month to pursue the recall, accusing Firestone of being elected under “false pretenses,” promoting development, and undercutting environmental efforts. Brooks has not publicly expressed any concern about the recall.
