City of Arcadia residents vote to recall mayor

Arcadia residents voted Tuesday night to recall Mayor John Kimmel.

Trempealeau County Supervisor Rob Reichwein won the election with 373 votes. Kimmel had 164.

The effort to recall Kimmel from his position was launched in September.

Duane Matelski was the lead petitioner. He accused Kimmel of misappropriating funds and not listening to feedback from the public during the debate over fracking.

Kimmel accused Matelski of making false accusations in the recall petition.

Kimmel is serving his fourth term as mayor.
