Colorado: Lawsuit trying to force a special election recall in Nederland rejected; Election scheduled for same time as next town election date

A Judge has rejected a suit trying to force a special election against Nederland Mayor Kristopher Larson and Trustees Dallas Masters and Julie Gustafson rather than having the recall scheduled for April 7 (the town's next election date). The Judge held that the plaintiffs did not allege an injury.

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.

Trustee James Rawsthorne resigned, complaining about the same issues that petitioners are using to target the three officials.
