Michigan: Kalkaska County Commissioner facing recall vote on May 8
Kalkaska County Commissioner Stuart McKinnon is facing a recall vote on May 8. Petitioners needed 213 signatures, handed in 263 approved ones.
Issues include McKinnon’s vote to eliminate funding to the Kalkaska County Michigan State University Extension (MSUE) and Kalkaska County Soil Conservation District, both of which have since had funding reinstated, his vote on two separate occasions to deny the placement of a bond proposal for the construction of a new library on 2011 election ballots and voting to eliminate funding to "a Housing Program that was serving senior citizens."
