Robert S. Filipkowski recall, North Brookfield, Massachusetts (2010)
Filipkowski's term would have ended in May 2012, had he not been recalled.
Voters chose Richard P. Chabot to replace the recalled Filipkowski. Mr. Chabot, who had previously served on the Board of Selectmen for 15 years, said of his candidacy, "“It didn’t look like anyone else was going to step forward, so I did what needed to be done." Chabot is also credited with having spearheaded the effort to recall Filipkowski. The recall petition alleged that Filipkowski engaged in "collusion, discrimination and violation of the state Open Meeting Law"; charges that Filipkowski repeatedly denied.
