LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

District 2 City Councilman Floyd Price addressed the attempt to have him recalled on Tuesday.

District 2 resident Gordon Harris filed an affidavit for a recall petition on Monday.

Harris says his community needs better representation at city hall.

Price said he was surprised to learn of the recall effort.

Price said he wants people to understand that District 2 is a large area and said that he would like Harris to drive through the district and see the changes Price has made since he has been in office.

"If he would just travel down I-27 and see all those brand new hotels and motels out there, then he would see something's going on in District 2," Price said.

Harris has until July 15th to collect 509 valid signatures from District 2 voters.
