Adam Colby recall, Coos County, Oregon (2010)
The December 7th recall election resulted in the recall of Colby.
Colby came under fire because "of personnel controversies within his office that has resulted in terminations and in some instances tort claims against the county."
In the summer of 2010, the Coos County Board of Commissioners mailed Colby a six-page letter that spoke of "future extraordinary measures" if Colby failed to address the issues the board identified as existing in his office. The issues had led to more than $200,000 in legal fees to defend the office against a variety of employee lawsuits.
Larry Rescorla was a leader in the effort to collect the signatures required to force a recall election.
