BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — An effort to oust Washburn's City Commission president has failed.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that President Larry Thomas defeated challenger Derek Laning 190 votes to 157 votes in Tuesday's recall election.

Recall committee members sought to oust Thomas over what they said were open meeting law violations, a hostile work environment and Thomas' disregard for others.

Thomas called the claims "totally fabricated" and said the election results show that the recall was unjustified.
