CORNELIUS, Ore. (AP) -- The mayor of Cornelius and two city council members who aligned with him have been recalled.

The Oregonian reports ( http://bit.ly/qlqZ1b) voters on Tuesday turned out Mayor Neal Knight and councilors Jamie Minshal and Mari Gottwald. They had been elected in November, promising to downsize local government.

The recall campaign was started by residents who objected to the firing in June of City Manager Dave Waffle. The move cost the Washington County city a $115,000 severance package.
