More than 3,000 Fairbanks-area residents signed petitions Thursday calling for a recall election against Governor Mike Dunleavy. Fairbanks members of an organization that’s running the recall effort say they gathered those signatures over three hours in an event at Pioneer Park on the first day of a statewide petition drive launched in response to Dunleavy’s severe budget cuts and other actions.
