Heceta Water District commissioner recall, Oregon (2010)
The Heceta Recall Committee led the effort to recall the three commissioners. Gene McDermott filed the official recall notices with county election officials.
The reason for recall given on petitions was that each of the commissioners "exhibit[ed] a lack of financial oversight."
In May 2009, the water commissioners voted to increase water rates from an average of $26.50/month to an average monthly bill of about $48.
