Council Member Bill Arnold from Although the group was clearly unhappy with other council they decided to limit Jrandt their targets to two because the coun cil would have to shut down without a quorum of Were not out here to hang the said David the groups unofficial Im out here to have government accountable to the and have an honest govern ment with no more backroom Before citizens can vote to recall a peti tion must be signed by a num ber of registered voters equaling 30 percent of the number of votes cast in the last reg ular municipal Arnold After the groups mem bers took home copies of the petitions against Arnold and which will be handed to city residents starting According to the New Braunfels city an elected city official can be recalled on specific grounds of misconduct or mal feasance in The petitions state that those who sign want the council members removed on these three grounds in failure to investigate allegations of voter misconduct of former City Man Paul The council decided last month to skip an investigation into charges that Grohman illegally coerced the votes of city Recall supporters also expressed anger that the council then approved a settlement to Grohman which included plus 10 monthly payments upon his The city secretary says we need 875 signatures on this Wal lace told the You havetia 45day window to fill it to get the i Bill Arnold could not

then Im just afraid that councils are going to have a very hard time functioning in this community from here on If the petition goal is it must then be filed with the city secret who would present it to the coun cil at a special meeting within five A targeted council member can then request a public hearing to prei sent facts for his or her and if the council member does not a recall election is Asked whether he might request a public hearing if the petition suc Brandt I havent given that a whole lot of thought at this Thats something Ill have to consider after seeing how the petition Wallace said he hopes that if it suc the two council members would have tht dignity to resign rather than face the embarrassment they would have to go Many of the recall groups mem bers were eager to start petitioning doortodoor and in front of local Id be surprised if we didnt have 75 to 100 people out there this weekend with Wallace Expressing confidence that enough support for a recall business man
