Whatcom County voters look to recall Doug Ericksen, senator on Trump transition team
BELLINGHAM, Wash. (AP) — A group of Whatcom County residents have started an effort to recall a state senator currently serving on President Donald Trump's transition team. The Bellingham Herald reports that some residents say Sen. Doug Ericksen can't do his job at home while he's serving as communications director for the Environmental Protection Agency during the presidential transition. Critics have noted Ericksen has missed at least 75 percent of the committee meetings he has been scheduled to attend this legislative session.
