Notice of Intention to Circulate Recall Petition - Vice Mayor Kimberly Ho

Return to Reasons for Recall


TO THE HONORABLE KIMBERLY HO: Pursuant to Section 11020, California Elections Code, the undersigned registered qualified voters of Westminster, in the State of California, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to seek your recall and removal from the office of City Council, in Westminster, California, and to demand election of a successor in that office.

The grounds for the proposed recall are as follows:

  1. Council member Kimberly Ho operates as if she is above the law as a member of a City Council repeatedly accused of corruption, nepotism and favoritism.
  2. Corruption and mismanagement by Council member Ho and two allies on the City Council has cost taxpayers millions of dollars in discrimination, retaliation and other lawsuit claims and litigation expenses.
  3. As a Council member, Ho has engaged in nepotism by joining another Councilmember in appointing each other’s children to City commissions and not disclosing this to the public.
  4. Ho has refused to adopt a strong Code of Conduct for City Officials that denounces ethical violations like nepotism and abuse of public resources.
  5. Ho and her allies passed a new rule giving themselves complete power over City Council agendas, silencing opponents by barring other council members from adding items for discussion.
  6. Instead of spending the funds to fight homelessness, make housing more affordableor increase public safety, Ho voted to spend over half a million dollars over the next three years on pay raises for her upper management employees, increasing one employee’s pay to $304,015 a year in salary and benefits.
