Robert Lovato was recalled from his position as president of the Cherokee Metropolitan Water District in Colorado Springs in El Paso County in a special recall election that took place on Tuesday, December 7, 2010.[1]

1,613 people -- roughly 15% of the district's registered voters -- cast a vote in the special recall election and 82% of those voters were in favor of the recall.[1]

According to a local newspaper, the Colorado Springs Gazette, "Residents in the district have endured steep rate hikes since the board took poor legal advice and illegally used water from the Upper Black Squirrel Basin. The cascade of water rate increases in recent years were needed to pay for mounting legal fees and the high cost of purchasing water."[1]
