TUCSON, Ariz. (KGUN) — Last year, a Tucson group looked to recall Mayor Regina Romero.

In October 2020, Chairperson Joseph Morgan of 'Recall Romero 2020' filed the initial petition. The group had 120 days to get at least 25,000 valid signatures to begin the recall process.

Now, Chairperson Joseph Morgan says they are turning in nearly 26,000 signatures to the City Clerk's Office.

The next measure would be—after those signatures have been verified, the Mayor would have five days to resign or it would be placed on the ballot for recall.

KGUN9 reached out to Mayor Romero's office for comment.
