Just because the Ada County prosecutor decided that Middleton Mayor Darin Taylor wasn't guilty of any criminal wrongdoing won't deter a group of Middleton residents from forcing Taylor out of office.
The residents say they've gathering at least 570 signatures—200 more than is necessary to set in motion a recall election. The petition was delivered to Middleton City Hall on Nov. 19.
The residents claim that Taylor has held secret meetings, hired unqualified people at city hall, and wasted taxpayer dollars, all of which Taylor denies.
Presuming enough signatures are verified, a recall election could be held as soon as March 12, 2013.
