California: Recalled Carson City Clerk now looking to run for mayor
City Clerk Jim Dear, who was removed from office on Tuesday, is now considering running for mayor. Dear had previously served as a three-term mayor before hoping over to the City Clerk job (which paid a lot more). The current mayor and two council members (plus a former mayor) are cited as being "ecstatic" that Dear was removed, though the vote was very close.
