Turner city councilor Mark McCracken

The recall of a city councilor in Turner appears to be successful after the initial batch of results were released Tuesday night by the Marion County Clerk showing voters were recalling Mark McCracken by a 2-1 margin.

McCracken was voted into office in the 2020 election, and his term runs through 2023. This was his first public office. He is a retired North High School teacher.

If the recall is successful, there will be an election May 16 to fill the position.

Turner, located a mile southeast of Salem, has a population of 2,944.

In his Statement of Justification, McCracken said that the recall was undertaken by “disgruntled past members” of the Crawford Crossing Home Owners Association Board” in response to a challenge to be accountable to home owners.
