An effort to recall Mayor James Fouts and City Clerk Paul Wojno in Warren, Michigan from their positions was launched in April 2014.[1] The effort against Wojno was abandoned in May 2014.[2]

Recall proponent arguments

Recall proponent and Warren resident Karen Spranger alleged that Fouts "abused city operations and threatened employees with violence." She further contended that Wojno failed to maintain all "necessary" city records and neglected to properly train poll workers.[1]

Spranger submitted petition language to the Macomb County Clerk's Office on April 1, 2014. The Macomb County Election Commission held a clarity hearing on the petition language on April 15, 2014.[1] The board voted 3-0 to reject the petition language. Spranger indicated at the time that she would submit new petition language.[3]

On May 21, 2014, the Macomb County Election Commission voted against Spranger's new petition language. Spranger said she intended to file petition language against Fouts a third time, but would drop proceedings against Wojno.[2] On May 23, 2014, Spranger filed new petition language against Fouts. On June 10, 2014, the election commission once again rejected Spranger's petition language.[4][5]
