How To Help With Coroner Tape Recall

Family First St. Tammany was formed with the sole purpose of recalling Dr. Tape. A recall is a lengthy and complicated process, therefore, this is an all hands on deck situation. We need roughly 38,000 physical signatures to trigger a Special Recall Election.

Here’s how you can help:

  1. Educate your family, friends, and neighbors about the issue. While it has been a hot topic in the media, not everyone is aware of how serious the situation is.
  2. Follow the page and share the information on Facebook – Family First St Tammany.
  3. Volunteer your time. We need help collecting signatures at events, in your neighborhood, at church on Sunday, etc. Please connect with us if you’d like to get hands on!
  4. Sign up to be a Hub. Collect signatures at your place of business.
  5. Just like a regular election, this is considered a campaign. We need to reach all corners of St Tammany Parish. We plan to use mailers, text messaging, and social media to help us cross the finish line. If you would like to donate to the cause, please give what you can. Please make check out to “Family First St Tammany” and mail to 409 E Boston Street, Covington, LA 70433.
  6. Last but not least, and most importantly, SIGN! Every single signature counts. We need 38,000 friends to physically sign the forms.
