An effort to recall Verbon Muhammad from his position as a school board member of the Monroe City School Board, Louisiana, was launched in November 2011.[1] The initial recall effort, as well as a subsequent recall effort, were both abandoned. A third recall attempt was underway as of June 2012, but the recall question did not make it onto the ballot.[2] Muhammad represents District 6. His term is set to expire in January 2015. Monroe City School Board member Clarence Sharp faced a failed recall effort.

Recall supporters

Margie Ausberry was the chairman of the first recall effort and Valerie Ann Webb Johnson was the vice chairman.[1] Brandon Johnson and Arenta Roe were involved in the third recall attempt.[2]

Path to the ballot

A formal recall petition was filed in November 2011 with Louisiana Secretary of State Tom Schedler. Recall organizers had 180 days from November 14, 2011, to collect the signatures of one-third of the registered voters within District 6.[1] The initial recall effort, as well as a subsequent effort, both failed. On May 25, 2012, a third recall petition was filed.[2] The third recall effort did not result in a recall election.
