Give West Virginians the Right to Recall Politicians!

This petition had 3,141 supporters

WV Governor Jim Justice has announced that he will switch his party affiliation from the Democratic Party to the Republican Party leaving many people feeling betrayed on the Democratic side and angered on the Republican side.

Make no mistake, this is not a partisan issue. Jim Justice has proven himself to be the exact opposite of what he promised the people of West Virginia. He claimed that he wasn't a regular politician who only looks out for himself. The people of West Virginia deserve to have faith in their elected officials and the offices that they hold whether it be on the federal, state, county or municipal level. We do not deserve to be the victims, blind-sided by political games and hidden agendas. When will we stop playing politics with the lives of the people who elected us?

 This is the reason why I am asking the people of this great state to sign my petition showing support for a bill I plan to introduce in the next legislative session which would give our citizens the rights of recall, initiative and referendum.

 If recall existed today, we could petition for an election to have Jim Justice removed from the office of Governor of West Virginia due to the fraud he perpetrated on the electorate by falsely claiming to be a Democrat.

 Politicians in this country should be beholden to the people that they serve and not be making decisions based on what will benefit them politically or personally at any given moment in time.

 How can we trust a man whose decisions sway with whatever appears to be popular at the moment? We deserve nothing less than public officials advocating for what is best for all West Virginians?

Please support this petition that will give the people of West Virginia the rights to recall, initiative and referendum.
