LA MARQUE — The first of two recall petitions was turned in on time and signatures are being verified by the city.
A recall of Councilwoman Connie Trube is being led by La Marque resident Valerie Beverly. The first of two petitions checked out from the city was due Monday.
That petition form was turned in on time, said Robin Eldridge, the city clerk for the city of La Marque.
The second petition form, checked out by Lee Clark, is due back to the city by Thursday.
It would take the signatures of 98 registered voters to put the recall of Trube on the ballot.
Eldridge said she was in the process of verifying the signatures in the first petition form.
Beverly has said that between the two forms more than 150 people had signed the recall petition.
