Carlsbad City Councilwoman Cori Schumacher Facing Recall for Punishing Small Businesses and Retaliating Against Constituents

San Diego Judge Found Cori Schumacher Liable for Harassment and Retaliation Against Constituents – City Faces Over $100,000 in Costs

WHAT: Reform California and a group of Carlsbad citizens and small business owners have announced a recall campaign against controversial Carlsbad City Councilmember Cori Schumacher.

Schumacher pursued stiff penalties to punish small businesses during the Covid-19 lockdowns, opposed the reopening of schools, and even retaliated against her own constituents by filing a false police report.

The 10 sponsors of the recall against Schumacher are all women. They are outraged that Schumacher’s false police report included a request for a restraining order against her constituents that diverted and wasted much-needed family court resources that should have been available to true victims of domestic violence.

Because of her false claim against her constituents, a San Diego Judge found Schumacher liable and city taxpayers may now have to pay more than $100,000 in damages to the victims of Schumacher’s misconduct.

Concerned Citizens of Carlsbad and Small Business Owners

WHY: “Councilmember Cori Schumacher’s misconduct has created a toxic and hostile environment at Carlsbad City Hall – and we must remove her from office so the city can move past the mess she has created,” notes Carl DeMaio, Chairman of Reform California. “This recall should send a clear message to other local politicians that they need to respect their constituents and offer a real plan to reopen our businesses and schools,” concluded DeMaio.
