Colorado: Article claims 54 recalls in state since 2009, 12 removals and 6 resignations

Protest hearings are being held over the recall effort against Mayor Todd Jirsa and Mayor Pro Tem Cody Walker. The issue was a change in the code in 2017 to allow commercial activity in a downtown park, which "inadvertently allowed commercial ventures almost anywhere in town or in the Estes Valley."

Most interesting in this article is the claim that Colorado has had 54 recall elections since 2009, with 12 resulting in removal and 6 resignations. I have seen that Colorado recalls seem more likely to result in the official surviving than in many other states, but I'll have to check my numbers.
