An effort to recall council member Randy Anny in Sorrento, Louisiana, from his position was launched in November 2013. The effort is led by Doris D. Lee and Ivan Bernuchaux Jr.[1]

The effort was triggered after heated discussions with council members over how law enforcement will be provided in the town. Anny, reportedly, argued with the the mayor frequently. The town's insurance company 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 not cost through December 31, 2013.[1]

Recall supporters say that "It boils down from him (Anny) stirring everything up. Our mayor, he doesn’t have a chance in hell to get things going forward. We’re not trying to hurt nobody, we’re just trying to move forward."[1]

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