Colorado:Signatures verified in Nederland Mayor and Trustees recall

Petitioners handed in enough signatures to get recalls against Nederland Mayor Kristopher Larson and Trustees Dallas Masters and Julie Gustafson on the ballot. Petitioners handed in 64 for Larsen and 59 were approved. They needed 58. Gustafson had 59 turned in, 55 approved and needed 47. Masters had 64 turned in, got 59 and needed only 47.

The recalls are over claims of "dereliction of duty." A regular town critic who is actually lives outside the town is one of the leaders of the effort. The complaints seems to be a kitchen sink effort, including complaints about Nederland's growth and lifting a moratorium on cannabis dispensaries.

Update: A court rejected complaints against the recall effort, so now we are waiting on setting a date
