JUNEAU, Alaska — Preliminary results show three Homer City Council members who faced a recall election clinging to their seats but hundreds of votes have yet to be counted.
Donna Aderhold, David Lewis and Catriona Reynolds were the subject of Tuesday’s recall election.
They sponsored a resolution promoting inclusivity after President Donald Trump’s election that churned up controversy in the fishing community.
An early draft of the resolution mentioned Trump, saying, among other things that he had stated a disregard for the First Amendment. Some residents saw the measure as unnecessary or in bad taste.
A revised version that the council voted on did not mention Trump. It failed, with Reynolds the lone supporter.
City Clerk Melissa Jacobsen says at least 850 votes are outstanding. Counting is scheduled to resume Friday.
