Montana: Whitehall recall effort decision expected this week
A Judge is set to rule on whether a recall can be launched against Mayor Dale Davis and councilmembers Tom Jenkin, Gerry Keogh, Joe Adams and Gary Housman. The questions are about whether there are legal reasons under Montana law to have a recall -- Montana is a malfeasance standard/judicial recall state. The petition claims that there were a violation of oath of office and official misconduct, but the claim is about events that happened in a council meeting on April 11. The town attorney disputes that the claimed events happened.
