Blackman Township trustees Betty Brockie, Mark Singer and Pulaski Township supervisor Robert Jones will all be facing recall votes in November. The Blackman Township team is being attacked for pay raises for members of the board. The two candidates against Brockie and Singer had to decide who would run against who. Brockie and Singer are Republicans, so this recall does have a partisan tinge.
Jones had seen three previous recall attempts, but this one finally got the language approved and on the ballot. This was related to the firing of Township Fire Chief Ken Watson.
Jones is a Democrat, and he actually beat his challenger, David White, in 2012, 476-402.
