Michigan: Flushing Township officials survive

Two recalls I missed in my scorecard, the Flushing Township Treasurer and Trustee, survived the recall. Both received about 66% of the vote, which was a bit over 1,400 votes.

The issues in the recall include:

Petition language states that reasons for recall include both officials not supporting the police department and stating the police department borrowed money from the water fund when it wasn't true.
The petitions also list additional, separate reasons to recall each official, including Noecker transfering $100,000 from the township water fund without board approval and Gardner costing the township unnecessary legal fees in 2009 when he requested copies of resumes and information for police chief candidates instead of reviewing them at the township hall.
