Cahnman's Musings was just invited to join this facebook group:
In turn, we were inspired us to spend 30 seconds on Google.
In Texas, the mayor may only be recalled in cities where the city charter specifically authorizes recall.San Antonio City Charter, Article IV Section 26:
Article II Section 4:Sec. 26. Recall provisions.Any member of the council may be removed from office by recall. A petition stating the general grounds on which removal of a district or ward council member is sought shall be signed by qualified electors equal in number to ten (10) per cent of those electors who were qualified to vote in such ward or district at the time of the last regular municipal election, and shall be filed by any qualified elector of the district or ward with the city clerk.A petition stating the general grounds on which removal of the council member serving as mayor is sought shall be signed by qualified electors equal in number to ten (10) per cent of those electors who were qualified to vote at the time of the last regular municipal election, and shall be filed by any qualified elector of the city with the city clerk.A separate petition shall be circulated with respect to each member of council whose removal is sought. (Ord. No. 47304, § 1 (Prop. 1), 10-27-76)
Candidates for and the person elected as member of the council in the remaining place, Place 11, may reside anywhere in the City and shall be elected by a majority of all qualified electors voting in said City election, with said Council Member to serve as Mayor as provided in Section 9 of this Charter.Article II Section 9:
Sec. 9. Mayor and mayor pro tem.As a resident of Austin, Cahnman's Musings will let San Antonians manage their own affairs. We will, however, point out that Julian Castro's re-election last May only had 7% turnout. This is an achievable task, if folks in San Antonio are up for the challenge.
Par. 1. The person elected to the last place on the council shall serve as and be the mayor during his term of office.
Julian Castro is a corrupt dirtbag who persecutes Christians; grounds for recall are plentiful.
On a related note, put that in your pipe and smoke it, Battleground Texas....
