TO THE COUNTY CLERK, COUNTY OF CONTRA COSTA, STATE OF CALIFORNIA.
   Pursuant to the California Elections Code, we the undersigned, registered qualified electors of the Town of Discovery Bay Community Services
District, County of Contra Costa, State of California, respectfully state that we seek the recall and removal of Brian Dawson holding the office of
Director of The Town of Discovery Bay Community Services District, County of Contra Costa, State of California. We demand an election of a
successor to that office.
   The following Notice of Intention to Circulate Recall Petition was served on 10/5/2011 to Brian Dawson.
                                             NOTICE OF INTENTION TO CIRCULATE RECALL PETITION
TO: Brian Dawson
   Pursuant to provisions of the California Elections Code, the undersigned, registered qualified voters of the Town of Discovery Bay Community
Services District, County of Contra Costa, State of California, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to
seek your recall and removal from the office of Director, in the Town of Discovery Bay Community Services District, County of Contra Costa, State
of California, and to demand an election of a successor for that office.
   The grounds for the proposed recall are as follows:
We believe Brian Dawson is unfit for office and unfit to represent the Town of Discovery Bay Community Services District.
He has had multiple angry confrontations following board meetings, which nearly led to blows, broken up by bystanders. He also passed a note to
the board President during a meeting, threatening to "kick your ass" over a policy disagreement.
   Since his Aug. 27, 2011 arrest on charges of child endangerment and spousal abuse, Dawson apologized for the actions that left his wife
bruised; He was charged with criminal child endangerment and spousal abuse.
   He claims to be back on the medications for bipolar disorder from which he claims to suffer, however he has demonstrated poor judgment,
inability to control his anger, and an increasing potential for violence throughout his term.
   Dawson has refused calls from fellow directors to step down from his seat on the CSD, and because of the distraction and danger that Dawson
presents, and his refusal to resign his position on the board, we find it necessary to seek his recall.
   The board and the public should be able to discuss and move forward with the district’s business without distractions and increasing threats of
violence from Brian Dawson.
   The printed names of the proponents (business or residence addresses are on file with the elections official) are as follows: Don Flint, Evadene
Kirkpatrick, ANGELINE DIGIUSTO, JOHN EMERSON, ERIC ITEM, Jeff Barber, PATRICIA A SCHROEDER, Nadine Kelly, MARK DORAN, Tom
Alarcon.
The answer of the officer sought to be recalled is as follows:
   It is with disappointment that I must write this response, but I feel that the voters of Discovery Bay deserve an honest explanation for recent
events, in light of the numerous false accusations being made against me. I did make a mistake, and take full responsibility for my actions as my
family and I work through our very personal situation, however this mistake has no bearing on the work I do on the DBCSD Board.
   Serving our community is a privilege and a duty that I take very seriously. In less than two years of serving you, I am proud of the progress that
we’ve made and the leadership, innovation, and positive energy I have brought to this position. I believe that each time we fall we are presented
with another chance to pick ourselves up and try again as stronger, smarter versions of ourselves.
   It is my greatest hope that the public can forgive me for my human failing, judge me based upon the merits of my ideas and decisions as a
Director, and allow me to continue the work this community honored me by electing me to do. A second chance is all I ask.
