An effort to recall Alvin Jackson from his position as Mayor of Richwood, Louisiana is underway.[1] As of March 2015, there is no additional information on this recall and it has been considered abandoned. If you have more information on this event, please contact us.


The recall effort was led by Richwood Alderwoman Margie Davis. Recall supporters were upset over the town's financial situation and wanted Jackson out of office. Davis told reporters in regard to Jackson, "I have lost confidence in his ability to manage the town of Richwood. I did write him a letter asking if he would resign because he had not done so, he told me nope, but I could recall him if I wanted to."[1]

Davis filed a petition to recall Jackson with the Louisiana Secretary of State in early September.[1] The state approved the petition and gave supporters 180 days, beginning on September 12, 2013, to collect the required 380 signatures.[2]
