Steve Vaus, who successfully coordinated the petition drive to place the recall of City Councilwoman Betty Rexford on the ballot, today announced that he will seek the Poway City Council seat to potentially be decided as part of the June 6 election.
On his website, Vaus announces, “I launched the Recall Rexford campaign with one goal . . .to give the people of Poway a voice in holding an official accountable for her actions. Now, having spent months talking to voters while getting the Recall on the ballot, it’s clear to me Poway residents want their voices to be heard on other vital issues as well. That’s why I’m running for City Council — to work for the people and with the people — on the issues that matter to them.”
Voters in Poway will decide the fate of Rexford, as well as a replacement councilmember should the recall be successful.
Rexford has been under fire for several months, faced with allegations of abusing the power of her office and demanded preferential treatment from the Poway Fire Department. All of her colleagues on the council, as well as the Poway News Chieftain and Union-Tribune have asked her to resign, to no avail.
