Michael Lovelock recall, Chesterfield, Michigan (2014)
The recall effort is being 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.
