Michigan: Four ousted in New Haven recall

New Haven Village Council President Jammie Kincaid and trustees Jaremy Davis, Jennifer Podgurski and Daniel Stier all were kicked out of off in a recall held today. Kincaid lost to the current treaurer Selena Passeno (67.5% to 32.5%)  The other three were beaten by Kevin Chandler, Ann Pridemore and Daniel VanDeKerkhove.
All the officials were up for reelection in November.
The recall was over allegations of corruption, especially after the council "gave Kincaid approval to negotiate a deal to put a landfill at the northern edge of town, near the massive Pine Tree Acres landfill in neighboring Lenox Township."
Pridemore, who initiated the recall, beat Davis by a 64.4 percent to 35.6 percent margin, while VanDeKerkhove won out over Stier 62.6 percent to 37.4 percent and Chandler easily defeated Podgurski by 70 percent to 30 percent.
