Michigan: Three Ishpeming City Council members survive recall
Three Ishpeming City Council members, Claudia Demarest, Elaine Racine and Mike Tall survived recalls yesterday -- recall against Demarest failed 442 yes votes to 620 no votes, against Racine failed 416 yes votes to 645 no votes and against Tall failed 413 yes votes to 648 no votes.
The recall was brought against the three council members for their "failure to vote for the transfer of retirement credits for Police Chief Jim Bjorne. Apparently, they are still fighting within the City Council.
