Metolius Mayor John Chavez was kicked out of office in a recall vote, 124-73. The issue was allegations that he concealed his criminal record, including an assault case from fighting with his brother and a DUII in March. He was also arrested for only completing 2 days of a 10 day jail sentence. The leader of the recall was former City Councilor Tryna Muilenburg, who lost the 2018 race to Chavez by one vote. Turnout (or return of the mail-in ballots) was about 35%.
The seat will be filled by appointment.
