City Council President Signs Recall Petition

     The President of the Fall River City Council has indicated to WSAR News that he has signed a copy of the petition to recall Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia ll.


Ponte said if a recall does in fact happen at some point later this Fall or later into the Winter he has made no decision if he would appear on a recall ballot as a contender for mayor.


8 contenders ran including then-Mayor Will Flanagan in a December 2014 recall in Fall River. 

Ponte also indicated on the Tuesday Edition of ''The WSAR Newsroom'' that he would allow Fall River Mayor Jasiel Correia II to address the nine member Fall River City Council  this coming Tuesday, but if only if Correia would agree to take questions from Council Members.
