Texas; Petitions against Denton's council member over fracking rejected due to filing too early timing issues

The attempt to recall Council member Joey Hawkins was rejected, because the signatures were handed in too early. Hawkins was elected on May 9 and sworn in on May 19, when the 180 day clock starts (petitioners cannot submit a recall until the official has been in office 6 months). Petitioner handed in 125 signatures and need 76. The issue is Hawkins vote to overturn an initiative banning hydraulic fracking.

There is also an ongoing effort to recall council member Kevin Roden.
