Recall efforts

In May 2012, teacher Margaret Richard Campo filed a recall petition against Pearson for his support of controversial pension and school voucher programs. In order for a recall election to be scheduled, organizers would have had to collect signatures from one-third of register voters in the district within 180 days.[4]

On June 25, Campo notified the Secretary of State's office that she was stepping down as chair, but said the recall would continue.[5]

In October 2012, the Secretary of State's office said the petition drive failed to collect enough signatures.[6]


Pearson is a member of the Louisiana Republican Legislative Delegation, and the Louisiana Rural Caucus.[7]
