Amourence Lee

Efforts to recall Mayor Amourence Lee have been halted after falling short of the minimum signatures required to get it on the ballot, recall supporters announced Friday.

The group, called The San Mateo Recall of Amourence Lee, did not meet the 9,000 signatures needed to trigger a recall election in November over concerns about Lee’s leadership and tactics on the council.

Pretty slanted article. The inquiry did not find "no evidence" of criminal activity or violations for the vote trading, it found insufficient evidence to press charges, it again raises "questions" about the Loraine vs. Linhares race which is based on sour grapes and a disagreement over whether the fact that Linhares stands strongly against basic human rights for women is not a valid concern for a local election, and once again does not address the origin of the controversy which was the fact that Diaz Nash and Newsom were determined to allow zero city business to proceed until they had secured the appointee of their choice for the fifth council seat.

Could you be any more inaccurate?


Wow, sounds like it was not so popular after all


Lee says in story that her home was vandalized. Assume she meant the rock thrown through a window, which raises the question of who did it. Was an arrest made? The DJ should do an update since she noted this.
