Judge’s Ruling Allow CS Recall Election May 14thNews Thursday, March 3rd, 2011
Brazos County District Judge Travis Bryan ruled Thursday the jurisdiction of a recall election against College Station’s Mayor and two councilmembers rested with the city.
That decision upholds the city council’s decision to schedule the recall election May 14th.
Recall supporters and Wellborn annexation opponents sued the council in January, wanting the election on March 28th and asking the judge to take control.
Bob Heath of Austin was the lawyer hired by the City of College Station.

Most of Thursday’s court hearing was lawyer’s arguments. The only witness, City Secretary Sherry Mashburn testified preparations have been made for the May 14th election date and nothing for March 28th had the judge ruled in favor of the plaintiffs.
