Attempt to recall sheriff rejected by Genesee County Board of Elections

Posted: Updated:

(03/24/14) - An attempt to recall Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell will not go forward.

Petition language submitted by businessman Nick Singelis was rejected by the County Board of Elections, Monday.

Pickell was targeted for recall over excess pension payments he received from the county.

Two members of the Board of Elections recused themselves from Monday's hearing because of their relationships with the sheriff.

In their absence, drain commissioner Jeff Wright and surveyor Kim Carlson reviewed the petition language, along with County Clerk John Gleason.
