A member of the Acton Town Council will face a recall election next month because critics claim that he cannot serve on the council while he is publisher of a local newspaper. A committee of the nine-member Town Council has set an April 4 recall election for Charles Brink, 51, who has served on the advisory group since its formation in 1989. Brink maintains that the recall is groundless and that he has no conflict of interest in publishing the Vanguard News while he is on the council.

Meet Citizen Brink. A heavyset bulldog of a man, Charles Brink returned three years ago to his hometown of Acton, formerly a rough-and-tumble mining community set in a steamy mountainous bowl between the Antelope and Santa Clarita valleys. Since then, Brink, 51, has fought with developers and has gotten himself arrested for allegedly stealing real estate signs. He was accused by rivals of swiping ballots for the Town Council election, though the accusations never led to criminal charges.
