Michigan: Cement City Recall killed by Judge
The recall attempt against Cement City Village President Jim Ellis over citations(and failures to cite) for licensing/zoning issues regarding a kennel, was killed by a judge, The petition was originally denied for unclear language. The judge ruled that the new petition has to be thrown out due to Michigan's law that a recall can't be filed in the first and last year of a term (if the term is longer than 2 years). Ellis's term ends in November.
