Voters have decided to recall the mayor of Wilson, according to the Louisiana Secretary of State's office.

The margin was 55 percent to 45 percent, with an unofficial voter turn out of more than 62 percent.

A recall petition accused Mayor Joshua Thomas of refusing to work with the board of alderman and firing valuable town employees.

Thomas had asked a judge to throw out the petition on the grounds it was improperly filled out, but an appeals court panel ruled against him last week.
