Before Arizona Chief Takes Office, Recall Effort Begins

By Andrew Ujifusa — December 09, 2014 1 min read

A teacher in the Phoenix area has announced that he is forming a political action committee in order to recall Diane Douglas, the Republican state superintendent-elect who doesn’t take office until next month.

The Arizona Republic reported that Anthony Espinoza, 25, registered the Coalition to Recall Diane Douglas with Arizona’s secretary of state last month. In order for an official recall election to take place, Mr. Espinoza and supporters of the recall have to get at least 364,000 signatures, or 25 percent of all ballots cast in the general election. They also have to wait at least six months from the time Ms. Douglas takes office before officially launching the recall effort and circulating petitions for signatures.

Accompanying the new recall push is a Facebook page, Recall Diane Douglas, which had about 9,900 “likes” as of last week. A Facebook page also has been created by the chief-elect’s supporters called Standing Strong for Superintendent Diane Douglas, which featured about 890 likes.
