The current recall against Gov. Kate Brown is a clear misuse of the recall process. The recall
 should only be used when there is clear evidence of serious wrongdoing, such as using your public
 position for personal gain, using public funds for purposes other than their intended use, engaging in 
criminal conduct while in office, or other serious transgressions. However, policy disagreements and 
disputes do not justify a recall, nor does the current rationale of many of the recall supporters that the 
will of the people is "not being heard."

In our last statewide general election, "the will of the people" was to elect Kate Brown to be our
 governor for the term. Those that wish to see Kate Brown leave office need to get better organized and 
use their persuasion skills to convince Oregon voters to vote her out of office at the next statewide 
election. A recall will obviously redirect our current elected state officials' time and energy, and resources, from focusing on current statewide issues and concerns.

In your opinion this is a misuse of the recall process. In my opinion, I will be happy when she is removed from office. Going against the will of the voters is reason enough.
