On the heels of the start of the recall effort against Rep. Al Pscholka, I have learned that eight additional state Representatives in Michigan are now being targeted for recall. These Republicans are being targeted because they won narrow victories in November 2010 and most are in traditionally blue (Democratic) districts (like Mark Ouimet in the 52nd District, i.e. MY district.)
Here is the list:
|23rd||Wayne||29,804||Deb Kennedy||13,877||Pat Somerville||15,927||7,451|
|24th||Macomb||32,987||Sarah Roberts||15,516||Anthony Forlini||16,552||8,246|
|30th||Macomb||28,234||Ken Lampar||12,502||Jeff Farrington||15,732||7,058|
|32nd||Macomb/St. Clair||31,822||Jennifer Haase||14,354||Andrea LaFontaine||16,101||7,955|
|52nd||Washtenaw||42,166||Christine Green||20,287||Mark Ouimet||21,879||10,546|
|55th||Monroe/Washtenaw||32,676||Mike Smith||15,381||Rick Olson||17,295||8,169|
|56th||Monroe||29,527||Kate Ebli||13,945||Dale Zorn||15,582||7,381|
|84th||Huron/Tuscola||30,362||Terry Brown||15,172||Kurt Damrow||15,190||7,590|
All but one of these state Representatives (Dale Zorn) voted in favor of Michigan House 4214 that became P.A. 4, Michigan’s odious Emergency Financial Manager Law. In at least half of these districts, individuals have stepped forward and agreed to file the required paperwork to begin the recall process, a step that is soon to be completed for the remaining districts.
More information will be forthcoming as this develops.
I’m just sayin’…
