Yucca Valley Recall

Recall Notices

NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CIRCULATE RECALL PETITION

              TO THE HONORABLE George Huntington: Pursuant to Section 11020, California Elections Code, the undersigned registered qualified voters of the Town of Yucca Valley, in the State of California, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to seek your recall and removal from the office of Council Member, in the Town of Yucca Valley, California, and to demand election of a successor in that office.

            The grounds for the recall are as follows:

  1. You approved a three-year contract for the Town Manager’s services that brought his annual compensation to nearly $300,000 while the Town is facing a budget shortfall, then cut/reduced highly-valued community programs and the personnel to deliver those programs;
  2. You voted to exceed the cost proposals for the animal shelter and a town park without identifying a funding source to pay for the excess; 
  3. You approved use of over $100,000 in public funds to promote a general fund tax measure;
  4. You improperly used your position as Town Council Member to solicit funds for a general fund tax measure from entities that did business with the Town;
  5. You voted to permit the Town Manager to pursue yet another tax measure proposal against the will of the residents of Yucca Valley;
  6. As Mayor, you voted to appoint individuals to two vacated Council seats while ignoring public outcry for an election to fill those seats.  One seat had nearly the entire four years remaining.

These are examples of your failure to exercise your fiduciary and ethical responsibilities as Council Member and your failure to represent the will of the registered voters of Yucca Valley.

A copy of this notice and proof of service will be filed with the Yucca Valley Town Clerk. 

Elections Code section 11023. (a) Within seven days after the filing of the notice of intention, the officer sought to be recalled may file with the elections official, or in the case of a state officer, the Secretary of State, an answer, in not more than 200 words, to the statement of the proponents.

    (b) If an answer is filed, the officer shall, within seven days after the filing of the notice of intention, also serve a copy of it, by personal delivery or by certified mail, on one of the proponents named in the notice of intention.

    (c) The answer shall be signed and shall be accompanied by the printed name and business or residence address of the officer sought to be recalled.
