Texas: Controversy over Lubbock Councilman recall fails due to lack of petitioner signature

The recall effort against Councilman Floyd Price, which saw 631 signatures handed in (508 are needed, 10% must have voted for Price in 2012), appears to have failed because the City Secretary claims that affidavits were not signed by the petitioner. Petitioner Gordon Harris claims that the City Secretary said he had all he needed when he handed in the petitions. Harris intends to run for the city council seat.

Lubbock is also witnessing a recall against Councilman Victor Hernandez on November 5 led by former county commissioner Ysidro Gutierrez.
