PACIFIC — Days after the Washington Supreme Court ruled an effort to recall the mayor of Pacific can move forward, opponents have turned in signatures they hope will force a recall vote.
KOMO-TV reported that the Committee to recall Cy Sun turned in 556 signatures Monday morning at the King County Elections office. If 425 valid signatures are verified, Pacific could hold a special election in late June or early July.
Sun has been at odds with the Pacific city council from the day he took office in 2012. He won a write-in campaign vowing to clean out what he called “corruption” at City Hall.
Last week the state Supreme Court unanimously ruled that Sun had abused his authority.
