California: Petitions against five Lindsay City Council members (including Mayor) due on February 6

An attempt to recall five members of the Lindsay City Council is still ongoing. Councilmembers are highlighting the cost, between $11,000-$14,000, double or triple the costs of a regular election. If a recall is on the June primary ballot, it would cost $6,000 to $7,000.

The recall was launched because of alleged financial mismanagement.

Of the five threatened members, Mayor Ed Murray, Mayor Pro-Tem Esteban Velasquez and City Councilmember Pam Kimball are all up for re-election in November while Councilmembers Danny Salinas and Ramona Padilla would serve until 2014, barring a recall.

Recall petitioners have until  Feb. 6 to hand in 549 signatures for each candidate.
