Floresville petitioners hire attorney to seek court-ordered recall

Residents seek recall election for 3 city officials

FLORESVILLE, Texas - Citizen petitioners in Floresville have hired an attorney to seek a court order for a recall election for three city officials.

Attorney Javier Villalobos was hired to pursue the recall of Mayor Sherry L. Castillo, City Councilman Daniel J. Tejada and City Councilman Juan Ortiz.

The Floresville City Council voted 3-2 last Thursday to prevent a special election.

Those who signed the petition are asking how three council members named on the petition can vote to prevent their own recall.

Villalobos has also been hired to represent the citizens of Crystal City in their bid to recall indicted city officials.
