Michigan: Five Ann Arbor City Council members facing petitions over vote in favor of Deer Culling

Ann Arbor council members Sumi Kailasapathy, Kirk Westphal, Julie Grand, Graydon Krapohl and Chuck Warpehoski are facing recall threats after the council voted 10-1 to hire sharpshooters to kill 100 deer in city parks this year (the Mayor was the only no vote). The other members of the council either can't be recalled yet (because they either haven't served 6 months) or weren't on the council.

Petitioners need 1791 signatures to get the recall of Westphal on the ballot (not sure about the rest of them).

All five of the candidates are up for election in November, so the recall would only be for about 6 months (it would be held on a primary day), though the council will be a two year term.
