The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

Supreme Court to rule on West recall

According to KHQ News tonight, the state Supreme Court actually got a ruling correct for once and is upholding a lower court ruling to allow a recall attempt on Spokane Mayor Jim West. This will allow Shannon Sullivan, a private citizen who seemingly has faced the mayor and his lawyers as a private citizen with no legal background and prevailed, to begin to gather signatures to put the recall on the ballot. Because of West's appeal it will likely not be on the fall ballot because Sullivan and Co. will not have sufficient time to gather the estimated 16,000 signatures needed in time for the vote.

Good luck and many thanks to Sullivan for stepping up to the plate for the future of the city of Spokane on this matter.
