Michigan: Belding school board recall won't be on Nov ballot
The recall attempt against two Belding school board members will not be on the November ballot, though it can still make it for February or May of next year.
Petitioners had to hand in 678 signatures for each candidate. Deadline was August 3rd to get on. Petitioners have up till Nov. 21st to get a recall on the ballot.
The issue was privatizing the janitorial staff. The superintendent claimed that the privatization would save $802K over 3 years, though 10 janitors lost their jobs.
