One effort to recall Councilman Ernie Trakas (R) was tossed out by a judge who said that Trakas did not violate the county charter by working as an attorney for school districts.
He is still facing another effort, which he has blamed on the County Executive. The recall effort needs about 15,000 signatures, though petitioners aren't handed it in just yet.
Trakas barely won his seat, which seems to be a key swing in the counsel. He also opposed a zoning change for a construction business in his district, though later backed down.
