Texas: Granite Shoals clears up recall law

Granite Shoals has updated its recall procedures after the resignations of Granite Shoals Mayor Carl Brugger and Councilor Bruce Jones in the face of an upcoming recall.  Petitioners must submit separate petitions for each official (which is the standard everywhere else in the US). 

Jones is almost certain return to office. The recall was scheduled for May 2021, but Jones is running  unopposed for reelection for his seat. So his resignation would only be for the time being until he is backed on the new term. Brugger was term limited and not running for reelection. 

The recall was over a vote to give the city manager raise.
