Three members of the San Fernando City Council, Mayor Brenda Esqueda and council members Mario Hernandez and Maribel De La Torre, are facing recall elections. Over 2,029 signatures have been verified for each. Election will be either in October or November. De La Torre blames the police union for the recall.
Recall organizers have accused the members of financial mismanagement of the city. The three were all embroiled in sex scandals, with Hernandez admitting an affair with De La Torre, and Esqueda allegedly being involved with a married police sergeant.
