Open Gov't Violation Grounds For Recall

The P-I reports that the Washington State Supreme Court held today that a recall petition could go forward against a Port of Seattle commissioner because she acted (to increase the pay of the port director) outside of a public meeting.

The port commissioner announced she won't run for re-election.

Since the $100 penalty doesn't seem to deter violations, maybe recall will.
