We must act

Another Reason To Help Recall Mayor Sun

In yet another example of Mayor Cy Sun's self-centered leadership, Sun has once again put his own wishes above what is best for the City of Pacific. In his official capacity as mayor of our city, he has informed a local labor union that he will never support them on any issue - ever. This goes beyond poor leadership. It creates battles where there are none and pits the city against employees before good faith negotiations can ever begin.

It's time to recall this man from office. We need your help immediately. Legal bills are mounting and must be paid in the next few days so the recall effort can continue. Please donate today!

Saved, For Now

As expected, the city council approved new insurance coverage last night. The new coverage provides about half the liability coverage of the last policy for about $100,000 more in cost, all directly due to Mayor Cy Sun's actions.

Now its time to focus on moving the recall forward as quickly as possible. Unlike Mayor Sun, the recall campaign follows the law and limits contributions to $900 per person or entity. Because Sun has appealed the recall to the State Supreme Court, the legal costs have increased significantly. We need your help TODAY. Please donate at the Columbia Bank at 12th & A Street or contact us at Thank you!

Vote On New Insurance Scheduled Tonight

The city council will vote on an offer for insurance from a new carrier at a special meeting tonight. News reports quote council president Leanne Guier as stating it is less coverage for more money, but it gives the city breathing room. It also means the recall effort to remove Mayor Cy Sun can move forward.

The regular council meeting begins at 6:30pm tonight. The meeting agenda is available via this link. KING 5 should run at story at 5pm tonight on the issue.

Latest Cy Sun Rant

Mayor Cy Sun posted another long, disjointed, malicious, inaccurate rant on his blog yesterday (link here). The distortions and misleading statements are too numerous to respond to in detail. If you have been following this saga you already know how far from the truth Sun's statements are. Please compare the mayor's latest rant to the more accurate reporting of city business on local blogs like Pacific City Signal Community News or any of dozens of mainstream media reports.

All the mayor's allegations have been proven false yet he refuses to listen to reason. The city passed a state audit with no findings of corruption. The salary savings the mayor lists will cost far more in lawsuits, not to mention the cost of dysfunction at city hall from lack of staff (which is the primary reason our insurance was canceled). The public works projects he lists were secured by previous administrations. Road project grants have come close to being lost due to Sun's unprofessional actions. Sun and his wife are illegally funding their own recall campaign. And on and on and on...

It would be easy to pass these rants off as the rumblings of a stubborn, crazy man. But he is the city's elected mayor. We, the taxpayers, must pay the price for Cy Sun's actions. The recall process is too slow, too complex and too costly. It is unfair to the good people of Pacific who deserve the chance to vote NOW on recalling this stubborn, crazy mayor from office.

State Patrol Report

In the many twists and turns in the saga of Cy Sun as mayor, one of the pieces was an investigation into the Pacific Police. The finding showed no misconduct by our police department. The full report is available via this link...

The council and new city clerk announced at the council meeting tonight that the city has found new (but more expensive) insurance for the city. The coverage can begin January 1st and would cover 2013. The News Tribune has more details here...

This means the recall effort can continue, with a hearing scheduled before the State Supreme Court soon. Your donations are very important if we are to continue this fight. Email us at for more details.

One Man Destruction

The editorial (link here) in the News Tribune today is a great summation of the sad state of affairs in our fair city. The editorial notes that watching one man singlehandly destroy a city is a lesson for the text books. It is much more tragic than a simple civics lesson for those of us who love Pacific.

In the end, either Sun resigns or he ensures the destruction of our city in just a few days. Either way he will not be mayor much longer. We may not have time to recall Mayor Sun. It's time for Mayor Sun to resign NOW.

The editor's note on his blog about trying to understand Sun's side of the issues offers great insight into why we are in this mess. You can read it here...

Congressman Reichert Weights In

When the new congressional district boundaries take effect January 1, 2013 Pacific will be located within the district of Congressman Dave Reichert. But the congressman is already busy working on behalf of our citizens.

Reichert sent a letter on Friday to Pacific's insurance carrier (copy here), asking them to grant a 6 month extension on the city's liability insurance. The extension would allow us time to recall Mayor Sun or dis-incorporate or be absorbed by neighboring cities, depending on what the residents and city council decide. If the insurance coverage ends as scheduled in 21 days, city functions will immediately stop - which Reichert correctly describes as disastrous.
