Maine: Two Freedom Selectman survive recall vote

Freedom Selectmen Steve Bennet (184-64) and Ron Price (183-66) survived recall votes on June 11 recall (it took place on the same day as a school budget vote). The issue is claims of abuse of office and conflict of interest against Price. There were complaint about a renovation of a post office, a purchase of a property and a lease of an excavator. Petitioners handed in 53 signatures for Bennet and 51 for Price.

Turnout was seen as high -- normally, the tturnout is less than 44 voters, but this year it was almost 50%.
