Michael Lovelock recall, Chesterfield, Michigan (2014)
An effort to recall Michael Lovelock from his position as Township Supervisor of Chesterfield, Michigan was launched in June 2013. As of May 2015, there is no additional information on this recall and it has been considered abandoned. If you have more information on this event, please contact us.
The recall effort was led by Gary Feld and "Committee to recall Michael Lovelock." Feld stated he was upset over a lack of transparency over the sale of used township trucks and a proposal to eliminate jobs in the township's police force as a budgetary reduction measure. Feld told reporters, "I just want more transparency, more honesty." Feld also stated, "My other issue with Lovelock is his lack of vision for the township. He's reactive not proactive. We need to prepare this township for the years ahead instead of just thinking another millage will solve our problems." In response to the recall effort, Lovelock stated, "I am not going to stop what I am doing for the community because I love this community."
It was noted that Feld is friends with David Joseph, a town trustee who has disagreed with Lovelock on some of the above issues.
