Alaska: Former Haines Assembly member writes book about time in office and recall election that she survived
Former Haines Assembly member Heather Lende has written a book about her time in office and the 2017 recall. She credits the failure of the recall proponents to show up to a forum as the critical campaign moment. At the time, three Haines Assembly members, Tresham Gregg (433-616), Heather Lende (405-644) and Tom Morphet (440-611) all survived recall votes. The recall was claimed to be about a violation of open meeting laws and coercion of the local police chief.
