Michigan: London Clerk resigns; petitions approved against two trustees

London Clerk Lisa Marie Francis has resigned in the face recall campaign, and the Election Board has approved petitions for the recall effort against Trustees Penny Turner and Roger Werstein.

The issue appears to be a $995 payment from the general fund after a court case was settled over a violation of a township ordinance. The payment was against the advice of the township counsel. Turner was elected to replace Richard Horn, who lost his seat in the November 2018 recall.

There was also a petition to recall Trustee Gary Taepke, who survived a recall vote last year, but that petition was denied because the Taepke is exempt from facing two recalls in a term.
