A group of Tucsonans hoping to recall Mayor Regina Romero got word from the city Tuesday that the campaign can start gathering signatures to potentially get a recall election in front of voters next year. 

Mayor Regina Romero has been in the mayor’s seat for less than a year. She was elected as the Old Pueblo’s first Latina mayor last November.

Former Republican congressional candidate in CD-2, Joseph Morgan, is now leading the effort to recall Romero. 

In June, Morgan led a small group of protestors outside the mayor’s house after Romero signed a proclamation instituting a mask mandate in the city to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The Pima County Board of Supervisors followed suit with a mask mandate of its own.

“A lot of the stuff that I find complete government overreach,” Morgan said. “The destruction of businesses through the Covid lockdown measures, they have no constitutional merit or basis. The mask mandate being a small outcropping of that. For me that’s where the angst started and then coming out of that, a lot of people reached out to me and said we need to recall her.”

News 4 Tucson reached out to the mayor’s office. They sent us this statement from Romero.
