Washington: Effort to change Snohomish form of government leads to mayoral recall effort
Mayor Karen Guzak faced a brief recall effort led by the chief proponent of the group that backed a proposal to change the government to a "strong-mayor" form. The bill passed, but the leader of the effort, Bill Betten, lives outside of the town. Guzak has requested a recount. Betten filed the recall petition on June 23, but withdrew it 3 weeks later.
