Recall on Campus

by Jonathan Higdon

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (UTC/The Loop) — It looks like political controversy has made its way to the UTC campus.

Organizers of a recall campaign have come here to sign up students for the recall efforts. They have set up a table at the foot of Cardiac Hill for the past few days.

Chris Brooks is manning the table. He’s part of a group that says too much corruption is taking place in city politics and it has to end. Brooks and others want to recall Chattanooga city mayor Ron Littlefield and two members of the city council. “So we feel that the best thing we can do is hold our leaders accountable by removing them from office and forcing a new election,” Brooks says.

The group already have 13,000 signatures and they only needed 8,950 to prove the recall will go through.
