Oregon: Gold Hill Medical Marijuana recall fails, with 4 council members surviving vote

Gold Hill Council members Margaret Dials, Lorraine Parks, Doug Reischman and Gus Wolf all easily survived their "medical marijuana" recall, which seems to have seen a huge 44.5% voter turnout. The four voted to allow a medical marijuana dispensary to open up. They appear to have gotten 60% of the vote. 

The article notes that Gold Hill is a veritable recall factory:

Likely a record for the city with a history of recall elections  boasting nearly a dozen since the early 1980s  some 298 of 670 registered voters turned out to weigh in on the matter of recalling four of the city's six elected officials.
