To the Honorable Patrick J. Morris, Mayor of the City of San Bernardino: Pursuantto the California Constitution, the Charter of the City of San Bernardinoincluding Article VII, Sec. 122 thereof, and California election laws,the undersigned registered qualified voterofthe City of San Bernardino, in the Stateof California, does herebygive noticethat I am a proponent of a recall petitionand intendto seek

your recall andremoval from the office of Mayor of the City of SanBernardino, California, andto demand
election of a successor in that office.

The grounds for the recall are as follows: MayorMorris was elected to office in February of 2006 and has since that time has failed to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the residents of the City of
San Bernardino and demonstrated dereliction to the duties of his elected office by failing to veto fiscally

irresponsible votes and fiscally irresponsible programs leadingto the misuse of the City's General Fund. Mayor Morris's failures to act have propelled the City of San Bernardino into financial crisis, and have led to the filing for protection under Chapter 9 of the federal bankruptcy laws by the City.
Further, Mayor Morris has violated the public trust by repeatedly failing to facilitate consensus with the members of the San Bernardino City Council on basic issues of City finances, and ignored advice ofthe City's Executive Staff for the previous two years regarding financial concerns. His action and inaction have led to massive reductions in City services and police and fire personnel, causing an increase in crime rates, businesses leaving the City, and contributed to overall blight within the City.

Pursuant to Article VII, Section 122 of Charter of the City of San Bernardino, a copy of this notice and proof of service will be filed with the City Clerk of the City of San Bernardino. Within seven (7) days after this Notice is filed the officer sought to be recalled may file with the City Clerk an answer, in not more than 500 words, to the statement of the proponents. If an answer is filed, a copy of it must be served on one of the proponents, personally or by certified mail, within the same seven (7) day period, and if it is to be published, at the same time shall file with the City Clerk a statement declaring his/her intent that the answer be published. The answer shall have printed name, signature, and residence address of the officer
to be recalled.
