PACIFIC — Early election returns show residents of the small town of Pacific on the King-Pierce county line are voting to recall their mayor.
The initial tally Tuesday night showed more than 67 percent voting in favor of recalling Cy Sun with about 33 percent voting to retain the mayor. Final results will be certified July 9.
Sun ran on an anti-corruption campaign in 2011 and won as a write-in candidate. He’s fired police chiefs and other city employees, prompting lawsuits against the town.
The recall accuses him of jeopardizing the town’s insurance by leaving some jobs vacant.
Sun did not immediately respond to email requests for comment.
If the mayor is removed, the city council would appoint a replacement for the remainder of his term.
