Welcome visitors and members of Recall Florida! We are a nonpartisan group from all walks of life, working together to ensure that all counties in the state of Florida, not just 20, have the right to recall a local elected official for the grounds for recall identified in F.S. 100.361. We have provided the information you need here to understand our initiative. Please invite others of like mind. If you have a good idea or other information you think we need, don’t hesitate to let us know! Join us on Facebook @recallflorida!
We are a nonpartisan political activist group that desires honest governance.
We are seeking from our legislators "citizen power" through a Joint Resolution, amending F.S. 100.361 to recall corrupt elected officials.
Currently, only 20 charter and municipal counties have this right. We believe all 67 should have the same right.
Rep. Jayer Williamson has submitted House Joint Resolution (HJR) 1603, Recall of County Officers and County Commissioners, and implementing House Bill 1605 in the House.
These will need companion bills on the Senate side, or amending of these bills to an appropriate Senate bill. House Joint Resolution (HJR) 1603 and House Bill 1605 bills must go through three (3) committees. We await the scheduling of these committees in order to support them along the way.
We will need all hands on deck to assist us in getting this passed in the Legislature (both House and Senate). Then it will go onto the 2022 Ballot as a Constitutional Amendment for which 60% of all participating Florida voters must vote "YES" in order for it to pass.
Elected office is a position of public trust. If a county official violates that public trust through say... acts of Malfeasance, or Misfeasance, to name a few, outlined as Grounds for Recall in F.S. 100.361, the people should be able to remove that individual through an exacting, detailed and ordered process already stipulated in this statute. Waiting until the next election will almost ensure more damage to their home county's public systems. We want a better Florida, so we are working hard to create a way for the people to hold their local politicians accountable.
We are growing and expanding with members from counties all across the state. Find out more by clicking the links below:
