New thread here for the signature gathering phase https://www.northwestfirearms.com/threads/riley-mclain-recall.195405/ 4/8/15 update. Plan is still as below. Final touches on the recall petition is underway. We are coordinating with OFF and other recall efforts in the state. For those able to help with collecting signatures please sign in here https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1UElOPd30pJbSt4YuREpxR1gR70oQN0BZNIsWKVxQeps/viewform 4/1/15 updates. First recall is now planned for Senator Chuck Riley. https://www.oregonlegislature.gov/Riley He is listed as a sponsor on SB 941. He narrowly won his district the last election with help from Bloomberg Last election results Oregon Senate Dist. 15 Chuck Riley(D) 18,087 45.7% Bruce Starr(R)I 17,822 45.0% Caitlin Mitchel-Markley(L) 3,578 9.0% Write-in 116 0.3% we will need signatures from this district >6400 We have a few candidates for Chief Petitioner and will decide on one by this weekend. We have support from OFF, MK Tactical and Oregon Arms and ammunition. Still waiting for response from the Oregon Republican Party and the NRA. We need volunteers for signature collection (thanks for those already in the comments) We need volunteers for the Petition Committee (a face to face get together to read the rules and delegate work) Prior updates: How about we develop a thread on initiating a recall. If and when Senate bill 941 passes. I'd like to see one of the legislators who voted for it (or more) hit with a recall. I'd like them to feel that if they are going to ignore people in their district fail to respond to even simple questions, that their job is at risk. If it passes the Senate, I want the reps in the house to know that a recall petition is already being planned for anyone who votes for it. I want to tell them we are planning a recall before they get to vote for it. Here is the process http://sos.oregon.gov/elections/Pages/recall.aspx Initial thoughts: We should target a legislator who was in a district where the vote totals were narrow making it more likely that they are recalled. Because only people who are registered in their district can sign the petition. The chief petitioner must be a registered voter in the same district in which the public office holder was elected or appointed. Who ever runs the recall needs to be registered in the district The number of signatures required to qualify a recall for the ballot is 15 percent of the total votes cast for governor, at the last election in the public officer’s district. After confirming who we will target, we need to fine out how many people voted for the governor in their district. We have to get signatures in fast. We have 90 days to get all the signatures in after initiating the process. that means a lot of us will need to help on this. Perhaps we get OFF, 2nd Amendment foundation, Lars, all the gun shops, involved. We will need a lot of volunteers to get this to work. we will need volunteers in front of gun shops and sporting good stores collecting signatures. So the next step is to identify the legislators sponsoring this bill and review the election results at their last election. Who is the most vulnerable to a recall? Which districts are the most pro gun who would likely sign the petition?
