 VALDEZ- The outcome of a recall election for Whittier Mayor Lester Lunceford should be decided Tuesday.

After last week's recall election, the vote was 55-50 to retain Lunceford in office. However, 23 absentee and six questioned ballots will be counted Tuesday.

Three former council members petitioned for the recall election, upset over how the city manager was replaced earlier this year.

In an email to The Associated Press, Lunceford says he did nothing unlawful and proper procedures were followed.
