Paradise mayor faces recall

Jones, Vice Mayor Bolin served—again—at council meeting

Jody Jones—the face of Paradise following the Camp Fire—risks ouster from the Town Council after a resident notified the town of his intent to file a recall petition Wednesday (April 17).

Jones (pictured), the mayor, and Greg Bolin, the vice mayor, were served with notices at Tuesday night’s council meeting. Town Clerk Dina Volenski told the CN&R she certified the notice-of-intent filing Wednesday morning.

Resident Loren Harvey had served Jones and Bolin at the previous meeting, but when he came to the Town Hall to file Tuesday (April 16), Volenski informed him he needed more signatures of support—20, versus the 10 he’d gotten—for his application to be valid. On the recall petition, he’ll need 2,836 signatures.
