Notice of Intention to Circulate Recall Petition - Councilmember Chi Charlie Nguyen

Return to Reasons for Recall


TO THE HONORABLE CHI CHARLIE NGUYEN: 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 Chi Charlie Nguyen operates as if he is above the law as a member of a City Council repeatedly accused of corruption, nepotism and favoritism.
  2. As a Council member, Nguyen has engaged in nepotism by joining another Councilmember in appointing each other’s children to City commissions and not disclosing this to the public.
  3. Nguyen has refused to adopt a strong Code of Conduct for City Officials that denounces ethical violations like nepotism and abuse of public resources.
  4. Nguyen and his 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.
  5. Nguyen placed the City at risk for an Age Discrimination lawsuit for his failure to contact Applicants for Planning Commissioner who indicated they are Retired or Semi-Retired. Councilman Nguyen stated on video he wanted someone “young and energetic” for that appointment.
