Washington: Cathlamet petitions thrown out; petitioners promise appeal

Petitioners have appealed a decision to toss out the recall effort against Mayor Dale Jacobson and Council members Sue Cameron, Ryan Smith and Jean Burnham. Since Washington is a Malfeasance Standard/Judicial Recall state, a judge was required to pass muster before the recall was allowed to go forward. The judge threw out the recall.

The recall is over a vote to buy a parking lot from a former council member (the price was $68,000 and an independent appraisal put it at $40,000).
