I’m not sure why this was not posted at the time, but for historical interest, here is a post that supposed to appear in 2013.
San Bernardino Residents For Responsible Government, the political action committee behind the proposed recall, contacted me today regarding the last post on the Notices of Intention to Circulate Recall Petitions in the Proposed San Bernardino Recall for November 5, 2013.
The Petitions were drafted by Michael L. Allan, a Pasadena attorney. The decision to use process servers was also his decision. The rest of the petitions will be released to the public on Monday, as listed on their website. They say they have not filed the petitions against Wendy McCammack and Rikke Van Johnson yet. San Bernardino Residents For Responsible Government says they are giving the office holders 14 days to respond to the petitions.
Within seven (7) days after the filing of the notice of
intention, the officer sought to be recalled may file with the City Clerk an answer in
not more than 500 words to the statement of the proponents and if an answer is
filed, shall serve a copy thereof, personally or by certified mail, on one of the
proponents named in the notice of intention. At the time the proponents publish
the notice and statement referred to above, the officer sought to be recalled may
have the answer published at his/her expense. If the answer is to be published the
officer shall file with the City Clerk at the time the answer is filed a statement
declaring his/her intent that the answer be published. The statement and answer
are intended solely for the information of the voters and no insufficiency in the form
or substance thereof shall affect the validity of the election or proceedings. The
notice and statement as referred to above, and the answer, if it is to be published
shall be published at least once in a newspaper of general circulation, as described
in Sections 6000 to 6066 of the Government Code, adjudicated as such.
Seven (7) days after the publication of the notice, statement and answer, if it
is to be published, the recall petition may be circulated and signed.
