The City of Norman announced Monday the effort to recall Mayor Breea Clark has fallen short. Norman is one of a handful of cities across the U.S. already making efforts to reallocate police funding following calls for reform, which prompted the recall attempt. The group Unite Norman did, however, gather enough valid signatures to begin recall proceedings for Ward 3 Councilmember Alison Petrone.

Unite Norman submitted signatures Friday in an attempt to initiate recall proceedings for Mayor Breea Clark and City Councilmember Alison Petrone. The Norman city clerk has 30 days to verify and count the signatures before a recall election can take place.
