I texted Mr. Greer after reading this thread and he said, and I quote, "I will run for Position 5, against Mrs. Cobb, if her position is not recalled and/or if she does not resign due to her behavior". Just reporting facts.
Not sure what happened on Saturday but it must have been a site.

I am riding the fence on the recall. Mainly due to the potential expense. Does any one know cost involved?

If it does end up with her removal, would they hold another election, or appoint someone to her seat? If it is appoint, the right thing to do would be to ask Andrea to fill the empty slot if needed, but as we seen in the past this does not happen.

Next year's election will be interesting to say the least.

This Topix post is all I can find on the matter. Not sure what happened, or if she did something illegal. I went to the Harris County District Clerk site and did not find any pending charges against her. So my next stop was MuniCode.(FYI - whenever you have a question about the laws of Deer Park, you can search the entire municipal ordinances at http://library.municode.com/index.aspx... )

It looks like she does not need to break any laws to have a recall effort launched, but actually getting someone recalled would be quite the effort. The applicable code is below. To summarize, you need 30% of the eligible voters of Deer Park to sign a petition.(Eligible voters - anyone registered to vote, and living in Deer Park.)

I have no idea how many eligible voters there are in Deer Park, I know our last population count was 32,706, and we had a "record breaking" mayoral election last weekend where 2,748 people voted for 1 of 3 mayoral candidates.

I think the barrier for recall is shockingly high (as, I suppose, it should be). So, not knowing the genesis of this recall endevor I am going to say it is unlikely to pass.

If there is no 'reason' other than "we don't like her", I will bet my house and my first born son that a recall will not be successful. Beating her at the ballot box would be far easier.

Section 4.03.- Power of recall.

The people of the City of Deer Park reserve the power to recall any elected officer of the City of Deer Park. A demand for the removal of any such officer may be submitted by petition signed by qualified voters in the city equal in number to thirty (30) percent of the qualified voters in the city who are eligible to vote upon such issue.

For those who don't know and are asking--Beckie, in all her glory on Saturday afternoon, began picking up Jeff Pounds signs and dumping them at his Election site tent--in the middle of the voting day. She then proceeded to scream, swear, and give the middle finger as she was giving people her opinion of Jeff. The Police were called and Classy Beckie was ticketed for several violations, including the sign ordinance. There is visual proof of this as well and I`m sure the next City Council meeting will be a doozy! Get yer seats early and often!

I would be interested in seeing this visual proof you speak of.
If this is true, Mrs. Cob should be booted out of office.

I do support getting to the bottom of things regarding the accusations against one of our city's council-persons.

If it is true that she did remove the signs and gets off lightly or completely, does that mean the the citizens of the Deer Park community can keep the street rightaways free and clear of all political signs come the next election cycle? It would make for a much better view for the visitors.

Apparently she was pulling up Pound's campaign signs during the day on election day. When Pound confronted her she told him "Piss on you Jeff". The police were called...it was quite a scene I am glad I saw it myself

These signs were removed from in front of her office only and she brought them directly to his Campaign site in the parking lot.

Correct. Both times. And they were on the easement of the city. When she delivered them in front of 30 people, Pound and Garrison supporters, she called him an A**hole and gave him the finger as she drove off in her new black chicago style cadillac. All this was also witnessed by children in both camps.

She doesn't know what the right thing to do is. That's what her and Sheila Jackson Lee have is common. In fact, the only thing different about them is their ethnicity origin.

Very logical response and absolutely correct.
Scary

I witnessed it too. There were small children right in front of her as she made this scene. Also kids at other tents overheard. I heard she made a scene last year in front of city hall when the 4b did not pass and a child was standing there with his grandfather outside and hid behind his leg because he got very disturbed. Wasn't there also an incident with a child over in her neighborhood and the police were called? I think she needs to resign now. If not, the mudslinging that Pound went through this year will be done to her next year 10 times more. I guess what goes around comes around. She should save herself the embarassment and bow out. She is scary and negative and out of control. After she resigns, I hope she seeks mental health treatment for her anger issues. She needs to work through the process and perhaps she will come out of it with a new and positive attitude.

Well I guess we are all human at one time or the other and when get baited one can make a mistake in judgement but the threats and name calling that she has gotten from the otherside of the fence is uncalled for also.

And trust me this is not Beckie or Johnny writing this.

And the stalking that nite was uncalled for also.

We all need to look into oursleves. There are a few of the people on this forum that should not be calling the kettle black either. None of us are Saints but it sure does seem that some of you think you are and I am sorry.

Time will tell.

I remember hearing on podcast how she spoke to the lady on Norwood who needed more time to fix her house up. Her tone and statement to her was uncalled for and to an elderly person at that. She is an embarassment to our community and should resign. There probably are more instances.
