Oregon: Lexington Mayor resigns in face of recall; City Council member survives recall

Lexington Mayor Marcia Kemp resigned in the face of an October 22 vote. The government was shut down for nine days  after councilors did not show up for a budget meeting, which three of the councilors claim that Kemp did not send them "reminders in order to make them look bad" -- Kemp says they didn't show up to make her look bad.

City Councilman Bill Beard survived an October 1 recall vote, 54-43. A city maintenance worker filed the recall effort against Beard, and has since resigned.
