Greg Bryan, Cecily Maniaci and Al Montoya recall, Tusayan, Arizona (2012)
A vote about whether to recall Greg Bryan and Al Montoya from their positions on the Tusayan, Arizona city council took place on March 13, 2012. Cecily Maniaci was also targeted for recall, but she resigned on January 30, 2012. The results of the recall election were initially too close to call, but Bryan and Montoya ultimately retained their seats.
Reasons for recall
Bill Fitzgerald, who is currently a member of the city council, initiated the recall prior to his appointment to the council. The three recall targets all voted to approve the development of 374 acres of resorts, shopping and housing. Fitzgerald believed the recall targets had a conflict of interest because of their connections with Stilo Group, the developer. On May 15, voters had a chance to ratify the council's approval of the development.
Path to the ballot
A recall election took place on March 13. Tusayan Fire Chief Robbie Evans ran against Bryan and Clarinda Vail ran against Montoya.
