Michigan: Benton Harbor mayor now facing petitions

Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower is facing petitions over claims that Hightower held private meetings with state officials and former Whirlpool executives and for cutting off elected officials from city business while working with the emergency manager. Petitioners need 393 valids to get on the ballot.

City Commissioner Dennis Knowles is the prime backer of the recall, and he himself is facing a recall threat. The recall against Knowles and City Commissioner Trenton Bowens was kicked back for unclear language.
