Petition submitted to Asotin Auditor's Office to recall Clarkston Mayor

CLARKSTON, WA - A Clarkston man wants Mayor Kathleen Warren out of office and is calling for her recall through a petition.

Bernard McCabe submitted a petition to the auditor's office Wednesday. He claims the mayor failed to discipline officer Bryon Denny after he said the officer lied about sending McCabe a citation.
Mayor Warren said she can't comment on personnel matters.

"I don't think that there's much of a case here," said Mayor Warren. "I think to go very far on this would be a waste of time and money."

McCabe said he's submitting the petition in a move to protect transparency. Within 15-days of the initial submission, Prosecutor Ben Nichols can forward it to Judge Acey who'll review the documents and schedule a hearing. If there is a hearing, McCabe and Mayor Warren will have the opportunity to discuss the petition and present their sides of the case.
