Any elective officer provided for in this Charter may be removed from office by the electors qualified to vote for a successor to such office. No such officer may be removed unless he has served for six (6) months of his term.
A petition demanding that the question of removing such official be submitted to the electors qualified to vote for his successor, shall be addressed to the Council and filed with the Clerk of Council. Such petition shall be signed by qualified electors equal in number to at least fifteen percent (15%) of the total votes cast at the last preceding regular municipal election for the office of the officer sought to be recalled, in case the officer was elected by the voters of the entire City, and at least fifteen percent (15%) of the total vote cast in a ward at the last preceding regular municipal election for the office if the officer was elected by the voters of that ward.
