An effort to recall Supervisor Ken Shoemaker in Chase Township, Michigan from his position was launched in January 2014.[1]

Background

A petition to recall Shoemaker was submitted to the Lake County election commission in January 2014. According to clerk Shelly Myers, however, the petition was denied on the basis of "improper wording." Myers further explained that the wording of the reason for a recall must have a "factual basis" and that the submitted petition did not meet that requirement.[1]

As of January 18, 2014, a second recall petition had been submitted and was scheduled for a "clarity hearing" on January 28, 2014.[1]

In response to the recall effort, Shoemaker said, "I am quite confident that most of the township is supportive of me and understands why we have had to make some of the decisions we have as a township."[1]
