We need recall law

With recent events unfolding regarding some of our elected Utah officials, I discovered that Utah's Constitution does not allow for a recall election.

I respectfully ask that a state constitutional amendment allowing an election recall process be considered in this year's legislative session.

As citizens in a state who seem to take their government seriously, and due to the questionable events currently in play, we should have a process to allow voters to correct their mistakes.

Reach out to your various state representatives and insist that we be allowed to exercise our right to recall elected officials.
