Sal Gomez filed an intention to circulate a petition to recall the eastside representative Emma Acosta after he said she ignored his petition to put an item before council that would "Fight Corruption at city Hall." He claims she also helped block a petition to put the city hall demolition decision on the ballot.
Acosta believes the petition is not about her, but about the county judge's primary race.

"I think my record speaks for itself. I don't know exactly. They're very vague in their petition, but I do believe it is politically motivated and I believe it's as a result of me not supporting their candidate,” said Acosta.

"We are not satisfied with her response. And this is one way that we can react and fight city hall," said Gomez.

Gomez needs 1,400 signatures to get the recall to a ballot. He has 60 days to gather those and present them to the city clerk's office.

We do need to "Fight Corruption at city Hall"! After all, we, as tax payers, have the right to know how our hard earned money is being spent and stop crooks from just putting their hands in our pockets any time they feel like it. If they have nothing to fear, let's keep City Hall transparent to the public. Rats belong behind bars and they need to pay their debts to society.
