The votes are tallied..and 5 Potrero planners got the boot

From the San Diego Union Tribune:

EAST COUNTY – Five members of the Potrero planning group were voted off the panel Tuesday night in a recall election that served as a symbolic referendum on a controversial training camp proposed by Blackwater Worldwide.

Three other candidates who favor Blackwater's proposal failed in their quest for a seat on the board: Anita Meneses, Brenda Wise and Edward Boryla.

Planning group member Jan Hedlun, who took office in January, is the only member who opposes Blackwater and was not a recall target.

Should Jerry Johnson be recalled?: Yes – 187; No – 93

Mary Johnson be recalled: Yes – 189; No – 91

Gordon Hammers be recalled: Yes – 196; No – 84

Janet Wright be recalled: Yes 186; No 94

Thell Fowler be recalled: Yes – 176; No – 104

Note: 280 were counted yesterday; 10 remain to be counted; 509 people in the community were eligible to vote.

Aha! The system worked in Potrero, didn't it? Warms the cockles of my lil black heart don't ya know ;)
