With the latest petition to recall Tustin Mayor Jerry Amante rejected yet again by the Tustin city clerk (this time on grounds that a one inch margin was lacking on the petition), one can surmise that the staff at the city is working to do everything they can to delay the inevitable. By denying the last petition and counting to 10, the city of Tustin has denied the Tustin Recall The Mayor group the ability to use the famous Tustin Chili Cookoff to collect signatures.
But the group may collect signatures anyway.
If you’re a Tustin resident who wants Amante out, you will be able to sign on as a supporter and commit that you will sign the petition to recall the mayor when the city clerk and city attorney both run out of excuses to deny the petition. Yes, you’ll wind up signing twice but consider it you sending a message to Mayor Amante you’re willing to go to the mattresses over his delay tactics.
The group is also seeking volunteers and funds to do this very grassroots efforts. They will also have information for residents to see that lays out the case for the recall.
Here’s a message from the group.
