  • In 2009, Adams is the target of two attempted recalls (one led by Edwin T. Snell, and the other by David Bartells). Both recalls failed to qualify. The Bartells attempt came closer than most to qualification, with almost twice the required signatures submitted; it was only because of a very low valid signature rate that the recall failed. Recall proponents announced in late December that they were abandoning the recall attempt.
