John Miller recall, Salmon, Idaho (2010)
Those who supported the recall effort said that Miller should be removed from office because he fired Police Chief Jim Spain.
The vote to fire Police Chief Spain on the Salmon City Council came in a packed meeting on June 9 attended by many members of the community.
It was thought by some that a long-standing personality clash between Miller and Spain had to do with differing views held by the two on the enforcement of laws against drunk driving. The mayor told a newspaper reporter in early 2010 that he thought the city was coming down too hard on drunk drivers.
