Petition Started To Recall St. Pete Beach Mayor

Jeff Janson, the former Corey Avenue Business Association President, has signed an online petition to get Mayor Steve McFarlin out of the St. Pete Beach City Hall.

After the events that transpired with the Swigwam not being allowed outdoor seating, some people have had enough of St. Pete Beach Mayor Steve McFarlin.

An online petition (which can be found here) to recall McFarlin from office in St. Pete Beach has been signed by Jeff Janson, the former Corey Avenue Business Association President, has started.

The petition is asking for registered voters in St. Pete Beach to sign in order to institute a vote for a recall on the next ballot or by special election.

The petition is not officially sanctioned or endorsed by the Corey Avenue Business Association, according to Kathi Hansen, the current president of CABA.

Part of the petition's stance reads as follows:

"(McFarlin's) behavior and decisions reflect a complete lack of understanding of the position he holds. He has repeatedly sent out insulting, abusive correspondence to the citizens he is supposed to represent. His continued service as Mayor places the City of St. Pete Beach in legal jeopardy, and is an ongoing liability and embarrassment to the Citizens of St. Pete Beach."

Currently, five people have signed up on the petition, including Janson. 

The petition started shortly after the decision to remove the outdoor drinking privilige of the Swigwam.

What do you think of the petition and Mayor McFarlin? Let us know in the comments.
