Klamath Co. Recall Falls Short

klamath co commissionersKLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — An effort to recall all three Klamath County Commissioners has failed, according to Klamath County elections officials.

A petition drive to force a recall against Commissioners Jim Bellet and Tom Mallams failed to turn in their petitions by the Monday 5 p.m. deadline; so ends the effort by a Merrill woman to remove the two board members.

Earlier effort to recall Board Chairman Dennis Linthicum also failed when petitioners failed to gather enough signatures. About 3,500 were required. At last word, some 1,500 were said to be collected.
