Oregon: Two Gaston City Councilors facing July 21 recall vote. Update: Both officials ousted

Gaston City Councilors Sarah Branch and Suzy Whitaker are facing a recall vote on July 21 over discussion of whether to reduce police services in order to balance the budget (though both said they support maintaining the same level of policing). Petitioners needed 36 signatures to get on the ballot. They got 38.

The lead petitioner is the former City Recorder and current member of the city's budget committee.

Update: Both Branch and Whitaker were ousted, with about 55% against them.
