Mayor Charlotte Schilling will be facing the voters on May 21. The recall is over her position on Kooskia Ambulance and was led by the former Kooskia Ambulance President Wayne Finehout. Schilling was appointed mayor in 2017, though has served on the council for 25 years.
Petitioners submitted 76 signatures and got 66 validated. They needed 45 signatures. Petitioners need not only a majority, but also must get 23 yes votes, which will be more than Schilling received in her last election. If she loses, the council will appoint a temporary mayor.
