Thegrounds forthe recall areas follows: Council Member Shorett waselected to office in March
of 2009 and has since that time has failed to protectthe health, safety, and welfare ofthe residents ofthe

Cityof SanBernardino anddemonstrated dereliction to the duties of his elected office by making fiscally irresponsible votes and by supporting fiscally irresponsible program leadingto the misuse of the City's
General Fund. Council Member Shorett's actions and failures to act have propelled the City of San Bernardinointo financial crisis, and have led to the filing for protection under Chapter 9 ofthe federal bankruptcy laws by the City.

Further, Council Member Shorett has violated the public trust by repeatedly failing to reach consensus with the other members of the San Bernardino City Council on basic issues of City finances which would allow the City of San Bernardino to emerge from the bankruptcy proceedings and begin revival of its economy. The City of San Bernardino is currently the object of nation-wide ridicule as a result of the mishandling of the bankruptcy and its proceedings.
