The Washington State Supreme Court said in a ruling today that the recall of the City of Pacific Mayor Cy Sun can move forward.
The court said two charges were adequate for submitting to the voters. First, that Sun attempted to use the Pacific police as his personal police force. Second, that he jeopardized the city's liability insurance coverage by not filling vacant positions in the city government.
Sun previously filed an appeal to the Supreme Court, appealing the recall petition.
Sun has been at the center of controversy since being elected in 2012. He fired a slew of city workers in the name of “reform,” and at one point was arrested by his own police officers for trying to break in to the city clerk’s office.
