Washington: Port of Vancouver recall attempt struck down

The recall attempt against Port of Vancouver Commissioner Brian Wolfe has been knocked out by a Clark County Superior Court Judge. Washington is a judicial recall/malfeasance standard state, where a cause needs to be shown for the recall to get on the ballot. The alleged cause was a violation of the open meeting law (a discussion in a closed-door executive session about a lease for a rail to marine oil transfer terminal). The judge ruled that Wolfe did not knowingly and intentionally violate the law.

There is still a petition against Commissioner Jerry Oliver to be dealt with.
