Signature Gathering Kicks Off for Recall of Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf
Tue Oct 4 2016
"Bye Libby" Campaign Collecting Signatures for Special Election to Remove Oakland Mayor
The Take Back Oakland Coalition is now gathering signatures to recall Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf. On September 18, recall organizers handed out the first recall petitions all afternoon in front of Oakland City Hall. Volunteers seeking to remove Schaaf from office then fanned out across city neighborhoods to collect signatures. They will need to collect 33,000 valid signatures of registered voters in order to call a special election for the recall, but those involved are fed up with Schaaf as mayor and are committed to seeing her removed.

As an all-volunteer grass-roots effort without paid signature gatherers, the Take Back Oakland Coalition urges everyone upset with Libby Schaaf's failures as mayor to get involved. Primary among the objections to Schaaf are her inaction in the face of massive displacement of long-time residents, the deference she continues to show to the corrupt and murderous Oakland police department, and her failure to support local youth and job centers.
