Michigan: Failed Council candidate threatens Ferrysburg recall
Ivy Barnes, who lost in a November election and then wasn't chosen for a vacant council seat, is threatening a recall effort against Mayor Rebecca Hopp and Councilwoman Kathleen Kennedy. Barnes came in second in the council seat race (the winner resigned the seat after one meeting; the third place candidate was selected -- the difference between first and third was 6 votes). Petitioner would need 316 valids.
