This letter is in support of Tiffiny Mitchell. The use of a recall petition in this case is unwarranted. Recall is a means of removing an official due to misconduct. The petitioners allege no misconduct by Rep. Mitchell. They want to remove her from office because they don't like how she voted on issues.

If we recalled every official who cast a vote we don't like, our system of representative democracy would break down. In a democracy we rely on elections, not recalls, to remove from office people with whom we disagree.
