Signature gathering underway 3/4/2021 to 8/11/2021
San Franciscans throughout the City and across the political spectrum are united to recall embattled district attorney Chesa Boudin. To bring change to San Francisco, city hall bureaucrats or grassroots, citizen-lead groups may propose ballot measures. This initial undertaking of a recall is one such example; concerned citizen and long time resident, Richie Greenberg, brought together a coalition of twenty-nine San Franciscans in early February, to create and sign the legal notice of intent to begin the process.
A RECALL IS A PART OF THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS
The duty to enforce criminal laws, hold criminals accountable, and represent the law-abiding citizens by prosecuting and convicting is the duty of the District Attorney. In San Francisco, this obligation to the people is from Chesa Boudin. Under Boudin, elected November, 2019, our city's criminal justice system has instead been suspended. Criminals are emboldened due to lack of accountability; those perpetrators arrested are simply let go, commit more crimes, and unfortunately, many are deadly. Our beloved city has seen an astronomical increase in violent crime, home invasions, shops looted, car-jackings, rampant and unchecked drug dealing and business property theft, even under Covid-19 restrictions.
EVERY RESIDENT AND EVERY VISITOR TO SAN FRANCISCO IS A POTENTIAL TARGET.
OUR HOMES, OUR PROPERTY AND OUR LIVES ARE AT RISK.
The recall of Chesa Boudin was started by a coalition of 29 co-signers/co-proponents which represent the spectrum of San Francisco voters. It includes 15 women and 14 men from every corner of the city.
