Re: the Sept. 21 article "S. Tucson recall election to be held in spring."

The voters of South Tucson have grown tired of South Tucson Mayor Ildefonso Green and councilmen Rufino Cantu, Robert Larribas and Carlos Romo’s inability to effectively govern. In an effort to remediate the situation, the residents have successfully secured a recall election. Mayor Green has run the city government into the ground. We cannot allow him to succeed in destroying our city and continue to disrespect our residents, employees and taxpayers.

If Green and councilmen Larribas, Cantu and Romo really care about the city and if they have any dignity at all, they will immediately resign. The choice is theirs. They can save the city some money for a recall election and spare the people of South Tucson an acrimonious recall, or they can — and will be — turned out of office at the ballot box.
