Manny Ortiz appeals recall petition

Manny Ortiz appeals recall petition

BERNALILLO COUNTY, N.M. (KRQE) – Bernalillo County Treasurer Manny Ortiz is going all the way to the state supreme court, to try and keep a recall petition from making it onto the ballot.

Ortiz is accused of mishandling finances leaving the county nearly $23 million in the hole.

The loss has forced every county department to make cuts.

Last month a judge ruled that there is enough evidence for Ortiz’s critics to move forward with a recall attempt.

Resident George Richmond is leading the charge to try and get the recall measure on the November ballot.

Ortiz denies he did anything wrong.
