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.
The 2022 session is over. During the last session Rep. Jayer Williamson submitted House Joint Resolution (HJR) 663, Recall of County Commissioners, and implementing House Bill 1399 in the House. These bills passed successfully through two committees in the House of Representatives, and died in the State Affairs Committee. It has become clear to us that our state leadership has no interest in providing all Florida citizens a tool to recall corrupt county officials.
Now more than ever we need YOU! Representative Williamson (our bill sponsor) in the last session will not be running for re-election. Therefore, in order for our recall movement to move forward we need a bill sponsor. Get on the phone and talk to your representatives, share with them your support of this important work. Encourage them to contact us. We must have a sponsor for this to move forward.
Join us, lets work together to build the Recall Florida movement. By joining our 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.
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:
