Poll: Most thought recall election was ahead

Things turned out differently than a large majority of Press poll participants thought they would.

Most believed Recall CdA’s petitions would have enough valid signatures to put a recall election before voters, but the initiative fell short and ended earlier this week.

When the counting began, we asked readers if they thought Recall CdA would succeed in triggering recall elections of the four targeted city officials — Mayor Sandi Bloem and City Council members Deanna Goodlander, Mike Kennedy and Woody McEvers. Here is how poll-takers responded:

• Yes — 586 votes (58 percent)

• No — 353 votes (35 percent)

• A few of them will face a recall, but not all — 66 votes (7 percent)
