As it turns out, the original legislation governing the Florida Keys Aqueduct Authority (FKAA) allows the public to recall a board member whether they are appointed or elected. (See Section 5.) I don’t know if that provision is still in effect, but it was there in 1976.
Anyhow, it got me wondering about the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC). Florida law addresses recalls for municipalities and charter counties. Monroe County is not a charter county. So what can Monroe County citizens do if a dud has been elected to office? Do they just have to suffer through until the next election? I believe the governor can remove them, but they pretty much have to be indicted or dead for him to do that.
Anybody know? You can respond in the comments or email me at email@example.com. Thanks.
