Michigan: Flint Council recall fails after signatures thrown out

The recall effort against Councilwoman Kate Fields, after officials threw out a majority of the signatures turned in. Petitioners handed in 825 signatures and needed 556. But only 332 were found valid.

There is still petitions out against Councilmembers Santino Guerra, Allan Griggs and Monica Galloway.

Guerra and Fields were facing a petition over a vote to extend a $12 million waste removal contract. Galloway is facing the petition over being absent for a vote to enter into a $5.6 million contract with a construction company.

Fields claims that Mayor Karen Weaver, Councilmember Eric Mays  and Community Liaison for Economic Development Aonie Gilcreast are behind the recall effort. Mays has acknowledged this.
