California: Two Orange Cove Council members facing recall threats
Two Orange Cove Council members, Glenda Hill and Frank Martinez, are facing recall petitions, led by former Mayor Victor Lopez, who himself is running for the city council. The current mayor, Gabriel Jimenez, who defeated Lopez in 2010, also supports the recall.
The issue is questions of spending, though one question is the council's decision to cut off funding to Target Eight Advisory Council, a nonprofit that operated the local day-care center. Lopez is the Target Eight executive director.
