City Councilors Steve Johnson (D) and Kim Sieckmann (R) are facing a May 23 recall (by mail-in ballot). Johnson's name was misspelled. The recall has been jointly condemned by the Chairs of the county Democratic and Republican parties.
Bill Osburn, the petitioner, recently lost a city council run. He claimed that there was illegal contracting. The party chairs are submitting the claim as a criminal complaint.
