Oklahoma: Piedmont official facing recall vote on Tuesday

Piedmont Councilman Vernon Woods is facing a recall this Tuesday due to his meeting wind enregy companies over plans to erect giant turbines after the city council rejected the idea.  Woods is facing two challengers in the vote.

Woods, who won re-election last year after grabbing nearly 70 percent of the vote, said he is the third Piedmont council member to be recalled in the last two or so years.

Here's the details on the two previous recalls:
Two other recall efforts were made in Piedmont over the past two years. A recall against former councilman Hoss Cooley was thrown out by a county judge in 2011 and another recall effort against former councilman Wade Johnson removed him from office in 2012.
