Petitioners claim to have handed in enough signatures to recall two Quilcene Jefferson County Fire District No. 2 Commissioners, Dave Ward and Mike Whittaker, but the country auditor is claiming that the petitions have to have the lines numbered.
Petitioners needed 194 signatures to recall Whittaker and 179 to recall Ward, and they got 242 and 244. The issue was the creation of a chief operating officer job for the fire district, which Ward was hired for. The reason the recall was allowed was a charge of falsifying meeting minutes.
