Local Man Attempts to Recall All Corpus Christi City Council Members

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A local man says he's fed up and wants to recall all Corpus Christi City Council members, except for one.

Ruben Morale has picked up petition sheets to recall Mayor Nelda Martinez, council members, Mark Scott, David Loeb and Lillian Riojas. He says he plans on getting enough signatures to recall all of them but Priscilla Leal.

Ruben Morales, spearheading recall effort, says,"They represent the system. They represent special interest. They don't represent the overburden tax payers in my opinion."

Armando Chapa, City Secretary, says,"It has been attempted before, but no, in my history, for the last 30 years there has not been a successful recall effort."

Morales now has six months to get the required signatures to force a recall election. He'll need 15,000 signatures for at-large candidates and about 3,000 signatures for district candidates.
