Redington Beach to Hold Recall Election
Perhaps following California's lead, the small Pinellas town of Redington Beach will be holding a recall election. The recall will try to oust Commissioner Sam Maniotes.
Maniotes plans to challenge the recall election in court on the basis that the charges against him listed on the recall petitions do not meet recall requirements set by state law.
If that effort fails, he said, he will campaign actively to keep his seat.
The initial recall petition, filed in May, accuses Maniotes of neglect of duty, malfeasance and creating a hostile work environment for town employees.
The recall election will be held September 19th.
