A third recall effort against Ward 2 Councilmember Mitch Lindemann became official on Nov. 4 after committee Truth for Douglas filed the proper documents and presented them to Douglas’ City Clerk Brenda Aguilar.
Ward 2 Councilmember Mitch Lindemann
“He was instrumental in efforts to deny and reduce involvement of voters in City Government. The overwhelming majority of his constituents strongly disagree with Lindemann’s voting record against supporting resolutions that would secure our borders against criminal and terrorist’s activities. His constituents do not want his role as City Councilman to be that of supporting the mission of the Border Network Operation for open borders. He has shown a lack of leadership by not educating himself on issues that are of extreme importance such as the recent redistricting of our city’s congressional, legislative and county districts. With the important challenges facing Ward 2 we need someone who will represent Ward 2.”
Olga Robles and Derek Garland, the committee’s Chairman and Treasurer respectively said that in order to support the recall 35 signatures were needed. The committee obtained 71 signatures from Ward 2 constituents.
Councilmember Lindemann said he is aware that a third petition of a recall against him has been filed but he feels confident that the people that are behind it will not have success again.
“Go ahead!” Lindemann said. “I will win; I have a lot of support from my district, so I am not worried.”
Lindemann also said that in the previous recall attempt he discovered a flaw, which led him to take this issue to court and spend$6,000 out of his own pocket in order to save money to the City. “This new recall is being brought by the same people with the same lies,” he said.
