Save Yourself - They Won't

   Recall in Lafayette - Change of plans

Originally, this space was designated as a spot for a story about a recall possibility.

 

The research regarding the number of signatures was done (171 verified signatures required per petition).

I have always held fast to the belief that recall really doesn't work. In many cases, it is utilized to merely 'send a message'. Unfortunately, the way state law is written, there is very little recourse for citizens to hold their elected officials accountable for their a actions, or lack thereof.

Last night, some very serious conversations were had about what to do about things here. The most often suggestion I hear is to just disband the city. While that could be done through a series of actions and initiatives, there has to be a better way.

I think I may have come up with it. More information about this project will be rolling out over the next few months.

If you think you would like to help with a project, completely not knowing what it will be at this time, please contact me. Call it a leap of faith in humanity.
