Fruitland Park Mayor and City Commission recall, Florida (2014)
Recall proponent arguments
Former city commission candidate Michael Howard spearheaded the recall effort. He alleges that the mayor and commission have wasted taxpayer dollars to settle lawsuits. "In the last 10 to 11 months we have paid more than $1 million in lawsuits. If this was a private company, these individuals would be fired," Howard said.
