An effort to recall council member Frank Hinojosa in Alice, Texas, from his position was launched in November 2013 by Former Pct. 1 Commissioner Zenaida Sanchez.[1] As of May 2015, there is no additional information on this recall and it has been considered abandoned. If you have more information on this event, please contact us.

Sanchez and recall supporters argued that Hinojosa had put his political agenda above the needs of the community. Specifically, they pointed to the firing of Ray De Los Santos, former city manager, which Hinojosa initiated.[2][3]
