Alaska: Wasilla having trouble selecting successor to recalled councilman
Wasilla is having a tough time choosing a successor to recalled councilman Steve Menard. The five members of the councils have been at an impasse in choosing from three possible choices for the seat (city law requires 2/3rds vote to choose the successor). Because Menard's seat became vacant more than 180 days ahead of the next regular election, the council can call a special election to fill it.
