An attempt to recall Mayor Everett Sickels has failed.
Earlier in the year, Town Councilman Ruben Madrid pulled a recall petition for the mayor, and recently turned it in with 579 signatures. In order to prompt a recall, 440 signatures had to be deemed valid by election authorities.
Wickenburg Town Clerk Amy Brown first reviewed the signatures and reduced the number of signatures to 461. Those were forwarded to Maricopa and Yavapai county recorder's offices to be compared to voter records. Maricopa certified 364 of 417, and Yavapai certified 36 of 44, for a total of 400, according to Brown.
