Group files to recall supervisor

A group of 20 residents this week filed their intent to begin gathering signatures to recall 3rd District Supervisor Terry Lawson-Remer, who represents the city of Escondido among other North County communities. The is one of five members of the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

According to the proponents of the recall: “Since taking the Oath of Office, Terra Lawson-Remer has pushed the agenda of special interests, lobbyists, and other outside entities; while refusing to listen to concerns of local constituents. Her policies and voting record go against the interests of struggling small businesses, families, and the constitutional rights of citizens. We need a public servant that will bring the community together to serve all the People of San Diego County, not just those that donated to their campaigns. Her divisive partisan rhetoric will continue to do irreparable harm to the County of San Diego if she remains in office. She has made it clear that she does not believe in accountability to her district or the hard-working People, Taxpayers, and Families of San Diego County. Therefore, she must be removed from office.”

The notification of intent includes the names and addresses of 20 residents, including 13 from Escondido. To view all the names and addresses, go to the legal notices in the printed edition, or see the end of this article.

The law requires that the notice that was printed in The Times-Advocate be filed with the San Diego County Registrar of Voters and within seven days of the filing of the notice of intention, Supervisor Lawson-Remer can file an answer to the recall.

Once all the legalities are past, the proponents may begin gathering signatures for the recall.  

The Times-Advocate sought a comment from Supervisor Remer’s office. Spencer Katz, her media contact got back the newspaper on Wednesday afternoon. He told the paper:  “This appears to be another attempt driven by far-right Trump supporters to overturn the results of the 2020 election so they can push their anti-science agenda and waste millions of taxpayer dollars in the process. Supervisor Lawson-Remer is proud to have been supported by an overwhelming 17 point landslide among voters last year, and will continue to focus on investing in our District 3 communities, protecting our environment, and helping our region’s small businesses and working families succeed.”
