Opponents of Alameda County District Attorney Pamela Price have given formal notification that they intend to remove her from office.

A notice of intention to circulate a recall petition was filed Tuesday with the Alameda County Registrar of Voters. The notice, addressed to Price, said she “is failing us in her responsibility to enforce the law, prosecute criminals, and keep violent offenders off our streets.”

Proponents call themselves Save Alameda For Everyone (SAFE), defined as “a broad coalition of Alameda County residents, business owners, victims, victims’ families and concerned citizens.”

Price was elected in November on a platform of criminal justice reform. Her campaign office didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Price has previously described the recall effort as coming from a Republican-backed group who “refuse to accept the results of a legitimate, democratic election to remove the status quo.”
