Recall proponent arguments
Recall proponent and port commissioner Brett Webb alleged that Auborn attempted to force the creation of a marine sanctuary in the region, against the wishes of the majority of the community's residents. Webb contended that the sanctuary would cause economic damage in the area. Webb also accused Auborn of making false statements about the sanctuary, using city resources for personal purposes, and failing to notify the public about a possible contamination of the city's water supply.
Auborn denied Webb's allegations and characterized the recall effort as "unfortunate."
