One week after the Recall Morse committee made history by turning in enough signatures to recall senate president John Morse, Pueblo grassroots activists submitted a little more than 13,500 signatures to the Secretary of State’s office today to make Sen. Angela Giron the second legislator in Colorado history to face a successful recall petition drive in a week.
The Pueblo Freedom and Rights organization is unrelated to the Colorado Springs group that petitioned to recall Morse and is headed by brothers Victor and Adam Head.
Victor said that he started the recall effort after Giron completely ignored her constituents and voted for every gun control bill. Three of the four state representatives who collectively represent the same people as she does voted against them, Victor said. Two are Republicans, one a Democrat. According to Head, this is not a partisan issue—this is an issue of people’s rights and a representative who doesn’t listen to the people who elected her.
