(City Council Meeting has a surprise)....It was at the Calexico City Council meeting this week.
Calexico Mayor Rosie Arreola Fernandez was served notice. A Recall Effort was underway. A group called Calexico Needs Change is behind the effort. The mayor has seven days to respond to the notice from the date it was originally served. The group must gather a certain number of signatures from registered voters before the recall qualifies for a vote. Arreola Fernandez was elected to the City Council in 2018. She was surrounded in controversy following two DUI incidents. The group says they are also upset by the City Council's lack of action on an eviction moratorium during the pandemic. Last year Calexico Needs Change began calling for the Mayor's resignation. She has not commented publicly on the recall notice or the groups demand for her resignation.
