Stamford City Council recall, Texas, 2009
Texas to recall all five members of the Stamford City Council. In an organized meeting held on September 15, 2009, residents started the petition to begin the process of gathering signatures for the recall election of council members Billy McCrary, Harold Ludecke, Bob Harrison, Dennis Braden and Leldon Clifton.
Approximately 50 concerned citizens attended a meeting and backed the recall efforts because of water problems that have recently struck the city. Other reasons for the recall include the termination of the city’s fire chief and a bleak financial situation. Although there are multiple reasons for the recall effort, water issues have taken the main spotlight. Residents have complained of a raise in the water rates, a $75 fee to turn water back on after disconnection, dirty bath and tap water and little to no water pressure.
Also target of the recall efforts is Mayor Johnny Anders.
