Notice of Intention to Circulate Recall Petition - Mayor Tri Ta

Return to Reasons for Recall


TO THE HONORABLE TRI TA: 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 Mayor, in Westminster, California, and to demand election of a successor in that office.

The grounds for the proposed recall are as follows:

  1. Mayor Tri Ta operates as if he is above the law, overseeing a City Council repeatedly accused of corruption, nepotism and favoritism.
  2. Corruption and mismanagement by Mayor Tri Ta 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 Mayor, Ta has repeatedly operated like a dictator, misusing our city police to pressure local businesses and punish political enemies.
  4. Ta has refused to adopt a strong Code of Conduct for City Officials that denounces ethical violations like nepotism and abuse of public resources.
  5. Ta 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.
  6. Instead of spending the funds to fight homelessness, make housing more affordable or increase public safety, Mayor Tri Ta voted to spend over half a million dollars over the next three years on pay raises for his upper management employees, increasing one employee’s pay to $304,015 a year in salary and benefits.
