Why don’t we like recalls? Because of such unintended consequences. And because they interfere with the process of running, serving a term and then giving voters a chance to decide on the totality of the officials’ service. Recalls should be reserved for those linked to malfeasance or a gross lapse in ethics or judgment. Disliking someone because they hold lengthy executive sessions, don’t support the incumbent superintendent or make some other unpopular decision misses the recall threshold for us.
