Kansas: Judge greenlights Basehor mayoral recall

The decision is being appealed. Kansas requires a cause for the recall, so worth noting that the Judge threw out two of the four grounds for the recall (failing to preside at all meetings and misuse of public funds --Mayor Terry Hill bought a scanner and coffee makers, and some food in another city. The mayor sent the purchases to his house to save on shipping costs).
The other two grounds -- that the mayor modified the contract of the former city administrator  Mark Loughry to provide additional health benefits for his family and authorized a $50,000 severance check for Loughry, without city council approval for either action -- are the basis for the recall.
