Maine: Judges toss lawsuit trying to stop recall of three Ogunquit Selectmen

A Judge has greenlit the recall against Selectmen Madeline Mooney, Charles Waite III and Robert Winn, throwing out a court case asking that the petitions and signatures are invalid because one of the petitioners isn't a resident (courts have held that petitioners do not have to be a resident to be allowed to collect signatures).  Petitioners handed in over 300 signatures. They needed 215 valids and got 253-257.

The recall is for the three selectmen's support of the town manager's decision to fire the Fire Chief.
