Michigan: Seven Westland officials facing recall petitions
Seven Westland elected officials, Mayor William Wild, Clerk Eileen DeHart Schoof, council President James Godbout and council members Adam Hammons, Meriam Kadi, Michael Kehrer and Dewey Reeves, are facing recall petitions. The language still has to be approved.
Two members of the council aren't included in the recall.
The recall is based on a not-yet-adopted proposal to build a new city hall. One of the petitioners lives in a subdivision which abuts the proposed new city hall. The petition against the mayor also cites an appointment of f two married couples to a citizens council.
