Montana: Troy Mayor who lost recall running for old office
Former Troy (Montana) Mayor Don Banning, who was kicked out in May recall, is looking to run for his old position.
Lots of bad blood all around. Two council members pushed for the recall (one of whom became interim mayor), and hire an attorney (who is now the current city attorney) to draft the petition.
The four reasons for the recall: the termination of Charles Evans as city attorney, cashing a city check, allowing a construction project in Roosevelt Park and making changes to the city charter, all without council approval.
