Chauna Banks-Daniel recall, Baton Rouge, Louisiana (2014)
Recall proponent arguments
Regarding his reasons for initiating the recall, Adams said, "My whole concern in the district, and our district now -- it's not getting better, it's getting worse." He added that Banks-Daniel did not maintain a consistent presence in the community.
James Slaughter, a recall supporter and opponent to Banks-Daniel in the 2012 election, has challenged Banks-Daniel on her role in the termination of Carl Slaughter (James's brother) from his role at the Jewel J. Newman Community Center.
Banks-Daniel said, "It's hard for me to speak on the recall. I still don't know anything about it. There's not one person who has indicated to me that they've been approached about the recall or asked to sign anything." She has also suggested that Adams and Slaughter are targeting her for personal reasons.
