County certifies Shores recall petitions
August 18, 2010
GROSSE POINTE SHORES — It’s official: The recall is a go in the Shores.
Principal recall organizer Dr. Robert E. Lee said Wayne County Clerk Cathy Garrett certified the petitions Feb. 25. The certification means that there are enough valid signatures to recall the candidates in question.
On May 4, Shores voters will be asked whether they want to recall Mayor James Cooper and City Council members Vicki Boyce and Robert Graziani.
“I think it shows the power of the people of the city exercising their power to affect change,” Lee said of the successful recall petition drive.
Since they resigned from their seats in February, former City Council members Brian Hunt and Fred Minturn won’t be on the recall ballot, Lee said. Both of them had also been targeted during the recall campaign.
At press time, Shores officials said they were still awaiting official notice from the county about the need to hold a recall election.
The deadline to register to vote is 30 days before the election. For more information about registering to vote or obtaining an absentee ballot, visit www.gpshoresmi.gov or call (313) 881-6565.
