Mayor Dan Holladay is facing petitions apparently because of a claim that the mayoral seat should be up for election this year. The term is up in 2018, but the petitioner (Mark Matheson, the vice chairman of the Barclay Hills Neighborhood Association), claims that Holladay's failed attempt to run for the Clackamas County Chair in May meant the seat would be vacant. Holladay claims that if he had won the office he could still remain as mayor, as it is a volunteer position.
Petitioner would need 1828 signatures (15% of governor's turnout) in 90 days.
Holladay had once pushed a recall on his own against a Clackamas commissioner, though it didn't go anywhere.
