The long-time coming recall election is part of Tuesday’s General Election.
Frankie J. “Judy” Howell is running against Winslow Mayor James L. “Jim” Boles in the recall election. If Howell wins the recall, she will complete Boles’s current term. If Boles is victorious, he will remain in office until the winner of the general election, also between he and Howell, is sworn in.
Also in the recall election Ed Bernier is running against Robert Beamish, Robert Smith is running against Robin Boyd and Sid Moore Sr. is running against Thomas McCauley.
Dolores C. “Dee” Rodriguez, Harold Soehner and Robert Mansell are unopposed in the election, but will still be on the ballot as required by law.
City Administrator John Roche explained voters should punch the area indicated next to the person they wish to remain in office or replace the incumbent. If there is no opponent and voters wish that person to remain in office, he instructs them to punch the area next to their name.
The ballot will also feature the election of a mayor and three council members.
Voters will choose between Boles and Howell to fill the position of mayor. The highest vote getter wins the election.
Voters will also choose three people to fill three vacant council member positions. Those running are Robert Beamish, Sharon Corral, Dolores C. “Dee” Rodriguez, Harold D. Soehner and M.E. “Tommy Tee” Thompson. The top three vote getters will fill the positions.
City Clerk Linda Samson said the newly elected mayor on June 4th at a special meeting of the Winslow City Council.
At that time, a vice mayor will be appointed and the newly elected city councilmen will also be sworn in.
