Florida: Airport election proposal leads to calls for recall of State Representative

A proposal to change the way the Punta Gorda Airport Authority Commissioners are elected (moving from a district based election to an at large one) has led to a threat of a recall against State Representative Michael Grant (R). Grant proposed the changes and his daughter, Commissioner Vanessa Oliver, was the sole "no" vote in a resolution opposing the rule. The issue seems to be about privatization of the airport, which Grant supports.

Florida does not have a state level recall law, so it is not clear how they hope to get a recall against Grant on the ballot.
