Third Petition to Recall District 2 Lubbock City Councilman Floyd Price Declared Invalid

Rob Snyder, KFYO.com

A third petition attempting to force a recall election against a Lubbock City Councilman has been declared as invalid.

Gordon Harris’ petition to garner a recall election against District Two Lubbock City Councilman Floyd Price was declared invalid by Lubbock City Secretary Becky Garza’s office on Wednesday.

Harris turned in the recall petition on September 3rd which had 1,042 signatures. In order to trigger a recall election against a Councilperson, he needed to collect 509 valid signatures from District Two voters, and 10 percent of the signers must certify that they voted for Price in the 2008 election, as he ran unopposed in 2012.

Garza’s office says that though 109 people certified that they voted for Price in that election on the petition, only 86 were valid.

According to Garza, each recall petition verification process costs between $2,000 and $3,000. She said that Harris is welcome to file another petition.

Harris was not in attendance at Wednesday’s announcement at City Hall, but he did weigh in on his continued opposition against Price after his second petition was declared invalid.

“I mean, the community needs this,” said Harris. “Like I said before, and I will say it over again, he (Price) does nothing for our community. Somebody has to get it done and I am the chosen one and I am going to get it done.”
