Recall petition against Sheriff Pickell rejected

A panel this morning held a hearing about a recall petition against Sheriff Pickell.

A proposed recall against Genesee County Sheriff Robert Pickell has been rejected.

Nick Singless filed the recall, which alleges that, "Robert J. Pickell only paid $15,000 back to the county for alleged mistakes in the administration of his health insurance and VEBA trust charges."

Genesee County Clerk John Gleason, Genesee County Treasurer Deb Cherry, and Genesee County Drain Commissioner Jeff Wright were all on the panel that held a hearing this morning on the recall petition.

The panel rejected the language of the petition.

Singless said that he will submit the petition again.
