In response to a lawsuit filed Thursday against the City of Providence and the two leaders of the Recall Kevin Jackson campaign, one of the two leaders of the group issued the following statement. The other leader of the group is Karina Holyoak Wood.


Statement by Patricia Kammerer, President of Recall Kevin Jackson

Why Councilman Jackson would file this suit, and create yet more distraction from his responsibilities to his constituents, is a question that many in his ward are asking themselves tonight. One of the reasons residents of Ward 3 are calling for Councilman Jackson’s resignation is because he can’t help but be distracted by having to defend himself against five indictments handed down by a grand jury.  

The purpose of this petition is simply to put to a vote whether or not Councilman Jackson should remain in office while under indictment for multiple felonies.  Why does Councilman Jackson want to deny his constituents the opportunity to express their views as to whether he should remain in office? If Councilman Jackson thought he had the backing of his constituents, he would allow this vote to proceed.  In fact he should welcome this petition, and put this question behind us and prove that he has the support of his constituents.

Instead he is using obvious delaying tactics, and attempting to deny the people he supposedly represents their right to petition and vote.
