POWERS, Ore. --- A recall petition was started this month against the mayor and a council member in the small southwestern Oregon town of Powers.

The petition says Mayor Robert Kohn and a council member are not governing with the city's best interest in mind.

Powers resident Robert Leckband filed the petition in December after he said he and other concerned residents noticed several issues centered on a lack of transparency and communication with the general public.

Kohn denies the allegations and says he believes he has acted in the city's best interest.
