Interesting attempt to end run the recall. Three Brookings officials, Mayor Ron Hedenskog and city councilmembers Ed Schreiber and Michelle Morosky, lost their recall votes, but now both Morosky and Hedenskog resigned prior to certification, which allowed the council to choose a new member. Many places bar this, by requiring a resignation in a set time (five days, usually), following the recall being scheduled for the ballot.
The recall was over the decision to reinstate the City Manager following her arrest for shoplifting.
According to The Recall of Public Officers by Bird & Ryan, Councilmembers in Watts, California in 1925, where they resigned once the recall was filed and then effectively were able to chose their own replacements.
Update: The new Council immediately fired the City Manager.
