A drive to recall Councilmen Ken Cleveland and Ray T. Smith was launched last week after nearly two months of haggling over the wording of the petitions. The recall group, led by roofing contractor John Butts, must gather the signatures of at least 5,166 registered voters--20% of the city's total--by the end of August to force a special election. Butts said the group hopes to gather 5,600 to 5,700 signatures to provide a cushion in case some signatures are ruled invalid.
