Florida: Bradenton Beach Mayor facing petitions

Bradenton Beach Mayor William Shearon is facing petitions, led by a former city commissioner. There is already a resultion to have Shearon forfeit his office, led by the Vice Mayor. They need 100 signatures.

Since Miami-Dade had its famous recall in 2011, this fact is clearly not correct:
Removal of an elected official from office in Florida, via recall election, is rare. The removal of Anna Maria Commissioner Harry Stoltzfus in 2010 was the first-ever successful recall election in Manatee County and the first in the state since the 1970s, according to Bennett’s office.
