North Pole considers censuring member

Posted: Thursday, September 24, 2009

NORTH POLE - The North Pole City Council will decide the day before the municipal election on a resolution condemning Councilman Doug Wilson for secretly recording a confidential meeting.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reported the council voted 4-3 Monday to override the mayor and put the censure resolution on the Oct. 5 calendar.

That's the day before North Pole voters elect a mayor and fill two council seats, including Wilson's.

The confidential meeting on June 1 was held to discuss an ethics complaint filed against Mayor Doug Isaacson. Wilson's recording came to light after the mayor sued the council last month to stop the complaint.

Wilson compared the recording to note-taking. He apologized and said he wouldn't do it again.
