Monday afternoon Mayor Jean Quan of Oakland has been put on notice that she may be facing a recall.

A petition was filed with the City Clerks' Office in the morning stating the intent to recall Quan. The petition was filed by a group of Oakland residents.

They say they're angry about Quan's failure to fight crime and to develop the city's former Army base.

Quan's office released a statement pointing out the mayor's improvements to public safety and evidence of her commitment to major economic projects.
