Voters in western Wisconsin recall mayor 
in special election

November 26, 2015

ARCADIA - Voters in Arcadia have recalled a mayor who had been in charge of the western Wisconsin city for nearly a decade.

Eau Claire TV station reports that the special election Tuesday came after complaints that John Kimmel put limits on public input when it opposed his positions.

Kimmel has called the recall effort a fraud and says it put together by people with a personal grudge against him.

Challenger Rob Reichwein received nearly 70 percent of the vote and now has 10 days to take office.

Kimmel began his tenure in 2006.
