Cotati to decide on recall of controversial councilman

November 17, 2009 7:27:05 AM PST
On Tuesday, Cotati voters will decide whether to recall a controversial councilman who showed himself in blackface on his Web site.

George Barich also wore an afro wig in that photo. He also wrote to President Obama on city stationary.

Barich won election last year by only five votes. He blames the recall on "mean-spirited, intolerant" people.

Voters will also decide which of three candidates will serve out Barich's term, if he is recalled.
