The recall effort against Superior Mayor Jayme Valenzuela is set for August 30, and now there's some more ammunition, as he has been indicted for felony theft over misuing public funds. He has also been fired from his job as Pinal County Sheriff's jail commander.
The charges are over unauthorized town-issued bank card withdrawals, including at a casino. The town clerk was fired after revealing this info, which led to the resignation of the Town Manager and Financial Director.
The town also has an issue of a copper mine being built, which Valenzuela opposed.
