Kansas: Dennison Mayor resigns two weeks before recall vote
Dennison Mayor Audrey Oliverius resigned in the face of a August 5th recall vote over a violation of the Open Meeting laws. The violation occurred during a meeting on who to appoint to a vacant council seat. Petitioners needed 12 signatures for the recall, they got 29 (including three of the other four council members). The recall vote will still take place due to the lateness of the resignation. The recall is for Oliverius' council seat.
