EL PASO — A recall petition was filed against one of El Paso's city representatives.
Former Mayor Ray Salazar filed the recall petition Wednesday with the city against Representative Cortney Niland.
She was one of the six reps to vote in favor of the ballpark taking the place of City Hall back in June.
She was out of town, but gave us her reaction over the phone.
"I do believe that on Tuesday night it was shown that the majority of our community supports this sort of progressive, forward-thinking initiative, to be able to try to put forth in this community," she said. "I take this job very seriously, it's an honor to serve my constituents and one that I don't take lightly, and I work every day, very hard."
The city now has to verify those signatures.
