Montana: Stevensville Mayor recall set for Election Day

The recall election of Stevensville Mayor Brandon Dewey has been greenlight by a Judge. The recall is over a contract for services with a tech provider. Dewey argued that the recall does not meet the state's malfeasance standard. The judge temporarily delayed the vote before ruling that the recall can proceed. The recall was originally set for August 4 but will now be held on Election Day. 

The claim is that the $79,800 contract wasn't approved by the City Council. There was also petitions filed five petitions filed against Dewey from 2018-2019, though none met the state's malfeasance standard and all were tossed.

Update: The mayor has filed a complaint against the recall committee, claiming that they failed to file finance reports.
