Texas: Hearne City Council member ousted in recall

Hearne City Council member Maxine Vaughn was ousted on Tuesday, 269-260. Turnout was about 18%. The replacement is by appointment, though they may leave the seat open until the May election. Vaughn was in office almost 8 years, and the recall was over claims of incompetence. This was a case where the city council refused to set a recall, requiring a judicial decision.
