Third Recall Attempt of Council Member DeLeon Begins

A third attempt to recall Lubbock City Council member Linda DeLeon is underway. Roger Settler, picked up the request for recall petitions Tuesday.

Settler issued the following statement Tuesday afternoon:  

"Instead of reaching out to dissidents, DeLeon publicly supported tactics of intimidation and suppression, even to the extent of legal action."

Settler is referring to the circumstances surrounding the last two petition campaigns in April-May and July of 2007. 

"Linda continuously asks the citizens to "put this behind us" while continuing to vote for higher taxes, higher fees, fines, vigorous code enforcements, and various boondoggles to benefit special interests. Despite considerable public outcry, the City Council plows ahead with its hidden agenda."

This recall effort is not associated with the two previous recall attempts against Deleon.
