Randy Anny recall, Sorrento, Louisiana (2014)
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. The recall did not go to a vote.
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.
