Laredo Voters Approve Mayoral and City Council Recall Proposition
Voters in Laredo, Texas approved a proposition to trigger an automatic recall for certain criminal convictions of mayor and city council members.
Proposition A amends the city charter to require city council members and mayors convicted of non-felony crimes to be automatically recalled.
Additionally, these non-felony crimes will be determined based on the district court’s assessment of whether the crime involves “moral turpitude.”
The proposition took effect when passed 77% to 23% on November 3.
