The effort to recall Foster City Vice Mayor Herb Perez is one step closer to appearing on a ballot after San Mateo County elections officials concluded Wednesday that a sufficient number of vetted signatures have been gathered. 

Signatures from 25% of registered voters, which comes out to 3,314 people, were required to place a recall measure on a ballot. Last month, a group called FC Watchdog submitted 4,380 signatures. County officials have since verified 3,913 signatures, which is well above the requirement though 467 of them were disqualified, according to a staff report.
