A vote about whether to recall the seven members of the Old Orchard Beach, Maine Town Council took place on June 11, 2013. Six of the seven members were recalled.

Background

In March, 2013 the Old Orchard Beach Town Council voted 4-3 to terminate Town Manager Mark Pearson's position. This set off a battle between supporters and opponents of the move. Opponents began a recall campaign against four council members who voted in favor of Pearson's termination. Shortly after supporters of Pearson's termination began a counter recall of the other three council members, leading to the special election of the entire council.[1]

Path to the ballot
