Valley City, ND (WDAY TV) - Valley City residents are headed to the polls today to decide whether Mayor Bob Werkhoven will keep his job. Werkhoven and a city commissioner are targets today's recall election.

It stems from political turmoil that plagued the city last year, and included the departure of Police Chief Dean Ross amid allegations he mishandled public money. The city dropped those allegations, and Ross is now running for Werkhoven's seat.

Werkhoven says he's done nothing to warrant a recall, and the money spent on the election could be put to better use.
