Four Attempts at Recalling Lubbock Councilman Have Mayor Calling for Changes to Recall Rules

Without taking a position on the local political issues, the changes suggested by the Mayor (via Fox 34 Lubbock) are already part of many charters in Texas.

“My input would be that if you had a failed recall petition on a councilman, another one couldn’t be started for a minimum of six months,” Robertson said. “That would get rid of this, ‘one after another, after another, after another.’ The other thing I would like to change is that if a councilman has less than a year left on their term, you can’t file a petition.”
