Recall Florida is a 501C (4) nonpartisan citizen activist group created to instruct and direct Florida citizens to lobby their representatives to create change.
Currently, inequity exists in current Florida law which allows charter counties, and citizens who reside in a municipalities to recall corrupt county officials, a process detailed in F.S. 100.361. This law prohibits non charter counties the same right. We believe the recall petition is a Florida Constitution "right" to petition our government for a redress of grievances;
Article 1 Section 5.
Right to assemble. —The people shall have the right peaceably to assemble, to instruct their representatives, and to petition for redress of grievances.
as well as a First Amendment right according to our Federal Constitution;
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Because FS 100.361 prohibits non charter counties from recalling county officials. We believe that this Florida law violates our Federal Constitution's;
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of equal protection of the law...
Elected office is a position of public trust. If a county official violates that public trust through say... acts of Malfeasance, or Misfeasance named amongst other grounds for recall in F.S. 100.361, the people should be able to remove that individual through an exacting, detailed and ordered process stipulated in current 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.
Join us, lets work together to build the Recall Florida movement. By joining your time, talents, and treasure we can influence our Legislature (both House and Senate)to listen and pass a bill to give "we the citizens" a tool to remove corrupt county officials . This process requires a 3/5 up vote in both Houses to be placed on the 2024 Ballot. This Constitutional Amendment requires 60% of all participating Florida voters to vote "YES" in order for it to pass into law.
We are growing and expanding with members from counties all across the state. Find out more by clicking the links below:
