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.

All four “Go Norman 2020” bond propositions, which consisted of city projects with a combined cost of about $120 million, failed to pass in Tuesday’s county election. 

Unite Norman, the group that’s collecting signatures in an attempt to recall the mayor and four city council members, requested an extension for signature gathering.

 

A Norman group has filed petitions in an effort to recall the mayor and half of the city council members. 

Norman City Council members adopted an ordinance mandating face coverings. The council passed the ordinance 8 - 1 during a special session over Zoom videoconference on July 7, 2020.
