John Miller recall, Salmon, Idaho (2010)
- Votes to recall Miller: 625
- Votes to keep Miller: 579
Those who supported the recall effort think 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 mayor Miller and former police chief Spain has 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.
