Alaska: Three Haines Borough Assembly members facing recall threats

Borough Assembly members Heather Lende, Tom Morphet and Tresham Gregg are facing recall threats over claims of Open Meeting Act violations and pressuring the police department to perform duties to benefit their private businesses (Morphet owns the Chilkat Valley News, the others are a writer and an artist). The battle seems to be about the police department providing a police blotter, which the newspaper would be able to run.

Haines is called the adventure capital of Alaska. Petitioners need 258 signatures in 60 days for each.
