Brighton mayor will face recall election following petition effort
BRIGHTON, Colo. -- Brighton Mayor Ken Kreutzer will face a recall election after petitioners gathered enough valid signatures, the city clerk confirmed Monday. Kreutzer has been criticized following the firing of City Manager Philip Rodriguez. Critics believe Rodriguez was let go because he uncovered $70 million in unused water money last fall, allegedly collected by overcharging taxpayers’ water bills. Some blame Kreutzer and members of council for trying to cover up the alleged overcharges.
