The people behind the recent attempt to recall Mayor Sam Allevato have given up.
In a letter to city officials submitted Thursday, a group calling itself “Residents for Honest Government” indicated that it is dropping its efforts.
"The proponents of the Intent to recall Sam Allevato have decided to terminate the recall effort, effective March 6, 2014," said the letter, signed by John Perry and Clint Worthington.
“The team decided to refocus our efforts to work on the next San Juan Capistrano municipal election in November 2014,” says the statement.
Allevato could not be reached for a comment.
