It's clear our community understands the serious threat we are facing with Cy Sun as mayor. One indication of your commitment to saving our city is your generous donations to move this recall forward - over $11,000 so far! We've reached our first goal and have the attorney's finalizing the court documents we need to get things started.
Many donations are coming in anonymously under the $25 limit and are making a big difference, as are the bigger contributions. They all matter and every penny is deeply appreciated. You are making a huge difference!
The attorney's are working right now to finalize the list of charges, called a complaint. The complaint must be reviewed by the auditor, then approved by the prosecutor. The prosecutor then writes the ballot wording and takes it to the judge for approval. If the judge determines there is sufficient justification for a recall, the petition is approved. Mayor Sun has 15 days to appeal, then we can start collecting the 411 voter signatures needed to get the recall on the ballot. Our hope (although its a real push) is to get the issue on the November ballot, where the full community can make the decision. More details on the recall process can be found here and about our recall process found here...
We are still in fundraising mode. We will need at least $5,000 more just to complete the legal process. There will be additional costs for printing and other campaign needs. Those who want to help with signature gathering, please message the committee via the Facebook page here... We want to be ready to move quickly.
Thank you so much for responding and for taking the time to understand the serious crisis facing our community. Together, we are taking back Pacific!
