Councilman Alfredo Pando is facing a recall drive. Petitioners are citing Pando's walking out of council meetings in progress and a last-minute budgetary maneuver to fill a dormant government job with funds slated for a federally-mandated lighting project. The walk out was related to an LED lighting project.
The leader of the recall effort is the husband of another council member. The petitioners need 10% of the previous election's turnout -- about 600 names according to the petitioners.
