The mayor of a small Eastern Oregon town is facing his fourth time before voters, even though he’s less than a year into his second term.

Weston voters will receive ballots soon for the second recall attempt against mayor Duane Thul, according to the East Oregonian.

Thul survived a recall election in his first term with 72 percent of the vote. He was re-elected last fall with 62 percent of the vote.

With 670 residents in Weston, only about 100 signatures are needed to trigger a recall election.

Thul says the low threshold for recalls makes the city look dysfunctional and could harm its image to businesses.
