The group needed 7,905 signatures but Tuesday afternoon delivered four large boxes to the San Bernardino County Elections Office containing more than 11,000 signatures for the recall of the Fontana Unified school board members.
"This sends a clear message to all politicians that the voters are not going to tolerate inappropriate behavior and people not looking out for the best interests of our community," said Jesse Armendarez, the quarterback of the recall group.
There were 11,658 signatures for Garcia's recall and 11,432 for Green's recall, Armendarez said.
The Elections Office has a month to validate the signatures.
The school board will decide when and how the election will be held, officials said.
It will cost the district between $200,000 and $260,000, Green said.
"The people will reject the recall and the money would have paid for one or two classes for our students," she said.
"And this is all because of the mayor," Green said.
Armendarez is "nothing more than a mouthpiece for Mayor Acquanetta Warren. She wanted a war and I'm going to give it to her," Garcia said in a telephone interview.
Her choice of words was a reference to a dispute she and Green with the district's after-school program, which is run by the city of Fontana.
Last year, after Green and Garcia said they thought the district should explore having another organization run the program, Warren angrily said outside the board meeting room, "This is war."
In the phone interview Tuesday afternoon, Garcia said she was engaged to marry San Bernardino attorney Tim Prince and planned to resign from her board position and move to San Bernardino to be with him.
But since it now appears there will be a recall vote, Garcia said she and Prince will look for a house together in Fontana, she will fight the recall effort and she will run against Warren when she's up for re-election as mayor.
"All I can say about this is that I couldn't ask for a better competitor," Warren said in response to Garcia's remarks.
"You know those two just don't get it. I would be shaking in my boots if more than 11,000 people had signed petitions seeking my recall," Warren said.
"Jesse (Armendarez) did a masterful job of organizing a very diverse group for the recall effort."
Both Green and Garcia said they have personal knowledge and have received credible reports that some of the signature gatherers misrepresented the recall petition by saying that signing the petition meant that an after-school program in the district would be saved.
Late last year, the district renewed the contract for the city of Fontana to run the district's after-school program for one more year.
Green said some petition signature gatherers accused Garcia and her of embezzling large sums of money from the district - an allegation that had never been raised before.
They reject that accusation.
In reality, the recall petition focuses on the two board members' opposition to continuing the after-school program under the city's management and what the recall group claims are "repeated attacks by Garcia and Green on the integrity of the district's administration and school superintendent."
Armendarez said that such misrepresentations by the group's signature gathers were not likely as they had clearly defined talking points about the reasons for the recall and were told to stick to those points.
