JoAnn Faiella recall, Port St. Lucie, Florida (2012)
Reasons for recall
Kurt Hoyer filed the recall petition. The recall petition alleged that Faiella is "incompetent" and "incapable of performing her duties." Hoyer said, "I think she's in over her head. Nothing personal, but she doesn't take criticism and doesn't work and play well with others."
Path to the ballot
To move forward with the recall campaign, recall organizers would have needed to submit 4,951 signatures by September 12. However, after gathering roughly 3,500 signatures, recall organizers failed to move past the first phase of the recall. If the first phase had been successful, recall organizers would have been given 30 days to collect an additional 14,853 signatures.
