Mitchell Lindemann recall, Douglas, Arizona (2011)
A vote about whether to recall Mitchell Lindemann from his elected position as a member of the city council of Douglas, Arizona, was scheduled for August 30, 2011, but the election was canceled in May due to court action. Lindemann represents Ward 2.
According to City Clerk Brenda Aguilar, the election was canceled due to the results of a May court case. Recall proponents had submitted signatures, but the court found that all of the proper recall protocol had not been followed. Aguilar said that in October 2011, a new party came forward to initiate another recall attempt against Lindemann, but no official paperwork was ever filed.
Richard Lopez was a leader in the recall effort. Lopez said, "We the Citizens for a Better Progressive Community and of Ward 2, are displeased with Mitch Lindemann for not participating in any meeting which would have educated him on border issues such as the Arizona-Mexico Commission regarding environment, infrastructure, real estate, port of entry, transportation, bi-cultural events, immigration, and tourism and not attending meetings helped by the Arizona League of Cities which give him legislative updates on important issues."
