New Mexico: Two Eldorado Community Improvement Association Board members facing petitions over using chickens as pets
Two Eldorado Community Improvement Association Board — president Ed Moreno and Jan Deligans are facing recall petitions for "spinning" the results of a referendum.
The vote was over whether chickens should be allowed there there, since a covenant bans “animals, birds or poultry … except for recognized household pets." The referendum failed, as it needs an absolute majority of the 2,777 owners. 999 lot owners voted for banning chickens and 805 for allowing them.
The two members have continued to push for the law.
