Salem resident Casity Troutt filed the petitions to recall directors Osvaldo Avila, Ashley Carson Cottingham and Karina Guzman Ortiz. A fourth director -- Maria Hinojos Pressey -- also voted for the ban but she was not named in the recall effort. ln her petition, Troutt cited the concealed carry ban as well as opposition to a book ban and support of transgender-friendly policies as reasons for the recall.
