An effort to recall city council member Russell Schneider in Temple, Texas from his position was launched in late March 2014.[1]

Recall proponent arguments

Recall organizer Mari Paul has argued that Schneider should be recalled due to a conflict of interest. Schneider's construction business has been contracted for city projects.[1]

Official's response

Schneider dismissed the suggestion that he was involved in a conflict of interest. "I'm not ashamed to do business with the City of Temple. The charter says you can do business with the city, and I intend to keep doing that. I have nothing to hide," he said.[1]

Path to the ballot
