Colorado: Williamsburg Mayor and two trustees facing recall efforts over property decision

Mayor Jerry Farringer and Trustees Robert Busetti and Forrest Borre are facing a recall over embezzlement claims following a vote to vacate a dead-end alley owned by the town that was then given to neighboring property owners. Farringer allegedly signed the document before he was sworn in.

Trustee Eva Mares is one of the leaders of the recall effort. Trustee Steven Ricotta, who is married to the town clerk who approved the petitions, is allegedly a potential beneficiary of the property vote, but is not targeted in the recall. The elected officials suggest that jealous over term length (Mares and Ricotta have only 2 year terms, the rest have 4 year terms) is a motivating factor for the recall.
