Hawaii Public Officers, Recall Initiative

To be delivered to The Hawaii State House and The Hawaii State Senate

Petition Statement

Citizens have no means to remove a public officer by way of recall, impeachment or initiative process except the office of the Governor, Lt. Governor or their appointees. The Hawaii State Constitution should be amended to allow for such recall of any public officers. HB 187 introduced in 2011 died in committee. It should be reintroduced and openly debated.
There are currently 675 signatures. NEW goal - We need 750 signatures!

Petition Background

Citizens have no means to recall their state representatives for good cause. A representative or senator who never communicates with their constituents and never responds to inquiries is failing the first obligations of their office. Citizens must be allowed remedies.
