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.
The five incumbents all supported the proposed facility. The results:
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 ;)
