Group that Wants to Recall Villaraigosa Looks to Arizona for Donations
The people behind "Recall City Hall" are hoping last week's vote to ban travel to and doing some business with Arizona will fuel donations to their campaign, which seeks to recall Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and support voting out the L.A. City Council at future elections.
"We think [Arizona residents and businesses] might be angry at the city over the boycott and help us out," organizer David Hernandez told the Daily News' Rick Orlov. "We know the recall will not be successful unless we raise between $500,000 and $1 million to hire circulators. It's hard when we are limited to contributions of $1,000."
The group needs to collect 243,000 signatures in 120 days total. "All we need is someone in Arizona who is angry enough to step forward with an independent campaign to help us out," said Hernandez.
