Citizen-Led Accountability

Precall the Ottawa County Commissioners.

Give them thousands of reasons to DEFEND your rights and DEFEAT government overreach.

Sign Precall Now

Precall is simple. Elected officials who fail to defend people’s rights should be REMOVED from office.

Election cycles are 2, 4, or 6 years. We The People should NOT have to wait years to voice severe disapproval at the polls.

Precall helps voters hold elected officials accountable ALL the time between elections.

The situation in Ottawa County is dire.

  • Unelected staff members at the local health department are acting like rulers with unlimited power to issue mandates.
  • Elected commissioners, charged with oversight of these unelected staff members, refuse to curb government overreach.
  • On August 24, 2021, the elected commissioners voted to give an additional $2,179,153 to the health department.

Despite MONTHS of advocacy from parents, citizens, and the Ottawa Republican Party, the local health department has not been stopped by the Board of Commissioners. Sign up to hold your elected officials accountable.

Sign right now.
