Keller Mayor Mark Mathews is facing a May recall vote at the regularly scheduled election. Petitioners handed in 2085 signatures, nearly all of which were accepted. They needed about 1400.
Petitioners claim that Mathews violated conflict of interest rules by voting in favor a project that involved the architecture and design company where his wife works (he disputes the claim, as the applicant was the contractor). It also claims that he kept the position as president of his neighborhood homeowners association advisory committee and the developer paid a $38,300 fine for improperly clearing trees, the fine was paid to the association rather than the city.
