Montana: Stevensville Mayor survive recall vote

Stevensville Mayor Brandon Dewey survived a recall vote, winning 52-48%. Dewey was facing a recall 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, leading for a vote on Election Day instead of August 4. 

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.

Two Councilmembers resigned after the vote.
