KETCHIKAN- A recall effort against seven of eight Ketchikan Indian Council members has failed.
The number of collected signatures for recall didn't meet several thresholds.
The Ketchikan Indian Community group, which spurred the recall effort, alleged the seven tribal members violated the tribe's constitution when they voted in late May to temporarily appoint the Tribal Council President Irene Dundas to act as CEO. Dundas held the position briefly.
The group also alleged that Dundas acted improperly when she fired the tribal human resources director, at the direction of the council.
Recall committee co-chair Martha Johnson says this doesn't disprove the misconduct charges; it only means they didn't get the necessary number of signatures.
