The next recall battle begins today.

Today the Save our City group held its first press conference in support of their efforts to recall Washington D.C.'s Mayor Tony Williams. The five reasons they cite to recall Mayor Williams are listed here.

This process is a long one and very unlikely to go very far. An even if it is successful, and a recall vote is placed on the ballot in the November election, then Mayor Williams himself can run on the next line of the ballot to replace himself. Therefore, unlike California where Governor Davis was prevented from replacing himself, even if Mayor Williams gets recalled, he could be replaced by Mayor Williams.
