City secretary begins counting Hernandez recall signatures


The Office of the City Secretary has begun counting signatures on a petition to have Victor Hernandez removed from the Lubbock City Council.

The deadline for submitting the petition is Tuesday by 5 p.m. but organizers submitted the petition on Friday.

There must be at least 448 valid signatures in order for the city to hold a recall election in November. According to Ysidro Gonzales, the petition has 586 signatures, more than 120 needed to remove Hernandez.

The city says it could take a week to check all of the signatures to make sure they are valid.
