Activists in bankrupt San Bernardino have qualified their effort to recall three city officials this fall, the county registrar of voters has announced.

Voters will decide on Nov. 5 whether to recall Councilmembers John Valdivia and Wendy McCammack and City Atty. James Penman. With the expiring terms of the mayor and three other council members’ posts on the same ballot, voters will have the chance to decide on seven of nine officials targeted for replacement by the activist group San Bernardino Residents for Responsible Government.

Mayor Patrick Morris has said he will not seek re-election. The officials whose seats are up this fall are Council members Virginia Marquez, Robert Jenkins and Fred Shorett.

The activists committee launched a “recall them all” campaign last May to “bring attention to the dismal performance” of the elected officials in the city, which declared bankruptcy in July 2012.

To get the recall question on the ballot, proponents were required to collect signatures from 25% of registered voters in each of the districts represented by the targeted council members and from 15% of voters citywide regarding the city attorney.
