Michigan: Judge okays petition against Flint Township Supervisor

Flint Township Supervisor Karyn Miller is facing petitions, after a Circuit Court judge rejected a claim that the language was insulting. Not clear why it is insulting though. Here's the dispute:

The recall petition against Miller, filed by resident Lavonna Harris, said, "On June 16, 2014, at a regular Flint Township board meeting, Supervisor, Karyn Miller, voted to approve ballot language for the Nov. 4, 2014, election, for a 10-year, 3.85 millage proposal for public safety."
County Treasurer Deb Cherry referred to the petition language as "insulting" after approving it, saying it was a ridiculous reason for a recall.
In Miller's appeal, attorney Mark Newman said the phrase public safety could be misconstrued to mean only police work and there is no "public safety department" for the township.
