New Mexico: Las Cruces Voting on city charter changes to recall creating malfeasance standard

Las Cruces is looking to change the recall from a political recall to a malfeasance standard/judicial recall one -- effectively, making it so that there needs to be a showing of malfeasance in order to get on the ballot. This change would put the city in line with state law and would be one of the few municipalities to make such a change to recall law.

The changes would also put in a  60 day time period, eliminate the amended petition process, let people strike their names, and let the City Council review petitions for compliance with the law.
