Holy Mess (AND they made national news!); via the Washington Times:
Weston Martinez, the president of BCCC [Bexar County Conservative Coalition], says that they have more than 3,200 signatures to recall Councilman Bernal. In an email to The Washington Times, Melinda Uriegas, Assistant City Clerk in San Antonio, confirmed that 5,377 valid signatures are required to hold a recall vote for Bernal. Uriegas also stated that 61,045 signatures are necessary in order to trigger a recall vote for Castro, and Martinez believes the group is on there way toward that goal. “There were 150 signatures collected last Sunday in only 1 ½ hours,” says Martinez. “This is a steady progression — not a quick hit.”Read the whole piece, which gives a fantastic synopsis how the recall effort formed, here.
