Michigan: Detroit Mayor facing recall threats from State Rep.
Detroit Mayor Dave Bing is facing a recall threat over shifting the city’s public health department over to a private nonprofit institute.
Democratic State Rep. John Olumba is behind the threat. He has requested an investigation by the Attorney General over the move of $50,000 in city funds into private accounts for a nonprofit Institute for Population Health without approval of the City Council. The money was put back in after the council objected.
