Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin makes history. Raleigh’s 62nd mayor is first to face recall.


More than 100 Raleigh residents, comprising a cross-section of age, race, and gender, expressed their overwhelming support for recalling Mayor Baldwin at Livable Raleigh’s July 17 public meeting at the Chavis Park Historic Carousel House.

Citizens are outraged by the Mayor’s disenfranchisement of residents, starting with the surprise attack on the Citizen Advisory Councils through to the secret closed door meeting to extend their terms much longer than necessary

Wanda Hunter and Tim Niles first explained the details of Livable Raleigh’s plan to recall Mayor Baldwin. Then took questions and comments from the crowd.


Hundreds have already signed petitions and hundreds more have volunteered to go door-to-door to collect signatures.

Some neighborhoods are planning neighborhood signing parties to be followed up by door-to-door canvassing.

Livable Raleigh is planning in-person petition signing events over the next few weeks all over the city that will be widely publicized.

And we have downloadable petition forms and instruction forms available on the Recall News page of our website for people who want to canvass for signatures or if they just want to print off a petition and sign it and then arrange for it be notarized and returned to us.

The Recall page will be updated regularly so check back often.
