Two Pacific City Council members have expressed interest in becoming mayor in the wake of a special election that recalled former Mayor Cy Sun.
Leanne Guier and John Jones were nominated at a special council meeting Tuesday night, hours after a King County Election Board certified results that forced Sun out of office. The City Council will appoint a new mayor Thursday.
That mayors term will end in December 2015.
Results from the recall showed residents voted 949-502 to oust Sun. Opponents accused him of trying to use the citys police as his personal investigative force and said he jeopardized the citys liability insurance coverage by not filling vacant department head positions.
