Brighton Council Approves Recall Petition

The fate of Brighton Mayor Ken Kreutzer is now in the hands of his constituents after a recall petition was approved by city council Tuesday night. The mayor himself voted in favor of the recall election even though it could cost him his job.

“I don’t want anybody to confuse my ‘yea’ vote on where I stand; but the issue is, this must come to the voters of Brighton, (it’s) for them to decide. It’s my responsibility as mayor to put this on the ballot,” Kreutzer said during the city council meeting.
