Oregon: Gladstone City Councilmembers kicked out

City Councilors Steve Johnson (D) and Kim Sieckmann (R) were kicked out in a May 23 recall (by mail-in ballot). The vote was (56.7 against Sieckmann and 57.2 against Johnson. with 20 turnout out.

Councilor Neil Reisner was apparently involved in the recall effort. The issue was a claim of illegal contracting and the lead petitioner was a failed city council candidate. The chairs of both parties denounced the recall effort. The City Administrator has since resigned.

The election apparently could end the city's $1.5 million lawsuit over Clackamas County library funding.

Update: A defamation suit filed by Sieckmann was thrown out.
