EL PASO- City clerks have confirmed that all three recall petitions have been verified. Mayor Cook and City Representatives Susie Byrd and Steve Ortega will be recalled.
Mayor Cook's petition needed 6,121 signatures, Rep. Byrd's needed 668, and Rep. Ortega needed 655 to be recalled.
The city clerk must submit the petition immediate to the city council without delay. If city leaders do not resign they will be up for re-election in May.
The recall will not be on the November ballot because the signatures were approved 10 days too late to be considered for the ballot.
