New Mexico: Las Cruces City council recall fails due to high signature rejections

The recall of three Las Cruces city councilors, Olga Pedroza, Nathan Small and Gill Sorg, Dist. 5, seems to have failed. Petitioners seemed to have missed by quite a bit (949 needed-586 verified), (839-677) and (1091-996).

I'm not sure how many signatures were actually collected, but the number is apparently over 5000 total so this could be a case of a heavy rejection rate. The petitioners are able to go back out there and amend the petitions.
