Residents file intent to recall city Rep. Lily Limon

By: Jesse Martinez
EL PASO, Texas Two El Pasoans have given notice of their intent to file a recall petition against a city representative.

According to the report filed by Israel Fuentes and Jerry Keith, city Rep. Lily Limon does not properly represent the constituents of her district.

The report also states that Limon did not respond to constituents concerns and she focused on efforts that were outside of District7, city officials said.

Limon released the following statement: "I am proud of my record, and what we are doing for district 7 and I will continue to focus on that work. I am proud to serve as a city representative thanks to the voters that entrusted me with this honor. Our government has a system of checks and balances and I am confident I will continue to serve district 7.

Fuentes and Keith will need a certain number of signatures on their petition in 60 days before they can move forward with the recall.
