A local man got the ball rolling Friday in a possible recall election, aimed at two of Colorado Springs city leaders.
11 News is told a local homeless advocate, 59-year-old Patrick Ayers, filed the recall paperwork with the City Clerk Friday. Ayers has made it publically known that he does not believe Colorado Springs Mayor Lionel Rivera and Vice Mayor Larry Small are fit to make the City of Colorado Springs financially stable.
Ayers announced he was going to file the recall after ballot issue 2C, which would have meant a property tax increase, was voted down on Election Day last week.
Once the city's signature sheets are given to Ayers, he will have 60 days to collect more than 14,300 signatures to force a recall election.
