Texas: Fourth attempt to recall Lubbock Council member leads to call for change in law

Mayor Glen Robertson is calling on changes to the recall rules, due to a fourth planned attempt to recall City Councilman Floyd Price. Each failed petition costs between $2,000-$3,000.
"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."
