One of the Quan Recalls Suspends Campaign

Leaders of one of the groups trying to recall Oakland Mayor Jean Quan have suspended their signature gathering campaign, saying they were not going to be able to obtain the required 20,000 signatures by May 14. “The reality is that the law sets a rather high bar in terms of the hours that you have to put in to gather the signatures you need,” said one of the leaders of the group, former city council candidate Charlie Pine, who added that his group has not been able to raise the money needed for paid signature gatherers.
