Here are some highlights from the recall petition that are posted to the website

We the residents and business owners of Seattle hereby request a recall election of the Seattle city mayor, Jenny Durkan, and all 7 city council members for the following reasons:

-Failure to uphold public safety and sanitation.

-Failure to uphold oath of office

-Failure to make the city business friendly

-Regressive taxes that hurt poor people.

-Allowing an illegal occupation of taxpayer land

-Allowing a dangerous environment and allowing murder.

-Allowing and ignoring federal narcotics was which has allowed hardcore drug dealers to take over the City, the extensive crime wave of break ins over the piglet sound are because mayor Durkan has failed to control crime in the downtown core for years and it has now boiled over to dysfunction, and the biggest favor she can do is resign.

Under mayor Durkan, the hands off police policy have turned the city into a crime infested and dangerous place.

Federal crimes are being committed in broad daylight in Seattle, and the administration is responsible. Allowing Federally criminalized substances to be carried and sold in broad daylight is against the law and the mayor, SPD, and city council have become accomplices by allowing this illegal activity to occur which has endangered residents and is getting worse day by day.

Seattle will collapse under current leadership; the people must act now, Please sign.

We ask the mayor and city council to either enforce the laws, stop catch and release, or resign so we can elect officials who will.

The people have had enough and the undersigned people have spoken to the Seattle city council in the Seattle mayors office that this will no longer stand and if you do not make drastic changes starting this week, to end their hands off policing policy, and restore public order we will take these signatures from this petition to the court and petition for the removal of both entities.

King County Superior Court Judge Mary Roberts has twice allowed the petition to go forward but only on one of the seven charges filed by the petitioners. Roberts dismissed six of the charges and allowed the one to go forward “more narrowly than alleged.”

Durkan asked Judge Roberts to reconsider but Roberts declined.

In challenging the court to reconsider Durkan’s attorney Rebecca Roe based her arguments on thin gruel. Roe wrote…

“Mayor Durkan has no legal or constitutional duty to prescribe policies and procedures for SPD. Instead, the City Charter places that duty upon the Chief of Police, who exercised her authority in a reasonable manner,” Durkan’s decision “not to overrule or usurp all or part of the Chief’s authority cannot be a basis for recall, particularly in the midst of a dynamic week of protests, public safety issues, and unrest.”

As a last resort, Mayor Durkan has turned to Washington’s Supreme Court asking it to reverse the lower court’s decision.

If the petitioners survive the Supreme Court test they would have to collect 50,000 signatures in order to force a new election.
