Gates City Councilors Ron Carmickle (101-91) and Jim Hensell (105-85) were oust in an August 18 recall vote. The issue was joining a proposed sewer district. The city did not have people willing to run for the position last election, so they may have some challenges in filling the seats. The council only has two of six positions filled.
Petitioners needed 35 signatures to get on the ballot (they handed in 87)
A former Mayor Dan Tucker (who recently resigned twice) led the recall effort.
