Members of the Colorado River Indian Tribes did not recall Treasurer Dennis Welsh Jr. or Councilman Merving Scott Jr. The recall elections on the two tribal councilmen were held Sept. 25.
The vote on Welsh went 360 "yes" votes to recall; and 379 "no" votes to not recall.
The vote on Scott went 353 "yes" votes to recall; and 387 "no" votes to not recall.
This is the third time for a recall against Welsh. He was recalled Dec. 31, 2009 and was returned to office March 5. The second attempt to recall him was started April 16, 2010. Recall petitions were turned in with 449 signatures, but 120 signatures were removed because of discrepancies.
A minimum of 366 signatures were needed and the remaining 329 signatures fell short. An attempt to reinstate the signatures was not accepted by the CRIT Tribal Court, according to published reports.
The following is the breakdown of the unofficial vote:
Dennis Welsh Jr.
District 1: 257
District 2: 43
District 1: 252
District 2: 83
Merving Scott Jr.
District 1: 247
District 2: 47
District 1: 262
District 2: 80
