EL PASO - People who oppose the effort to recall mayor John Cook and two city representatives held a rally in Central El Paso.
The "Say No to Recall Picnic Rally" started around 5:30pm Sunday at Memorial Park. That's the same place where Pastor Tom Brown and his lawyers held a news conference yesterday.
Brown and his supporters are circulating a petition to recall Cook and city representatives Susie Byrd and Steve Ortega.
Brown claims they overturned the will of the voters when they restored health benefits to gay and domestic partners of city employees.
The anti-recall picnic lasted about 3 hours.
