ANCHORAGE - A pair of city council members in the Matanuska-Susitna community of Houston are the targets of recall applications.

Four recall applications were filed Wednesday against Acting Houston Mayor Sandy McDonald and Councilman Roger Purcell.

The applications accuse them of holding improper public meetings and reviewing confidential personnel files without approval.

Tammy Bennett is listed as the primary sponsor of all four applications, which have 13 other sponsors. She is the daughter of former Houston Mayor Dale Adams.

Acting City Clerk Debbie Fites says she is reviewing the recall applications with help from City Attorney Michael Gatti.
