The Josephine County Republican Central Committee voted on July 7 to endorse the effort to recall Commissioner Cherryl Walker.
Ms. Walker was elected Commissioner in 2012 by a margin of 58 votes. In her first year in office, she distinguished herself by personally campaigning for four “nuisance” ordinances that were subsequently defeated by nearly 80% in a referendum last November.
Since becoming chair of the Board of County Commissioners six months ago, she has twice called the police on citizens during Weekly Business Sessions for failure to obey rules that did not exist at the time, adjourned a Weekly Business Session without conducting county business because she felt she couldn’t control the meeting, and attempted to eliminate public comment from the Weekly Business Sessions.
