An effort to recall council member Randy Anny in Sorrento, Louisiana from his position was launched in November 2013. The effort was led by Doris D. Lee and Ivan Bernuchaux Jr.[1] The recall did not go to a vote.[2]

The effort was triggered after heated discussions with council members over how law enforcement would be provided in the town. Anny, reportedly, argued with the mayor frequently. The town's insurance policy for the police department was canceled with no new policy taking its place. The council agreed to having the Ascension Parish Sheriff provide protection at no cost through December 31, 2013.[1]

Days following the petition submission to recall Anny, another petition was filed for Mayor Mike Lambert.[1]

Recall supporters filed an "intent to recall" petition with the Louisiana Secretary of State on November 20, 2013. In order to trigger a recall election signatures from a minimum of one-third (348 signatures) of the town's registered voters were required. Supporters were required to submit the signatures by May 19, 2014, 180 business days from the day the petition was filed.[1] Recall proponents ultimately failed to collect the required number of signatures.[2]
