An effort to recall Randy Richardville, a member of the Republican Party, from his elected position representing District 17 in the Michigan State Senate was launched in the summer of 2011.

On July 6, 2011, the Monroe County Elections Commission unanimously approved recall language against Richardville. Targeting him for his vote to tax retirees' pensions, the language consisted of one sentence: “While serving in the Michigan Senate on May 12, 2011, Sen. Richardville voted yes on Michigan House Bill 4361 (S-5) as amended.” The petition was the second attempt by Ernest A. Whiteside to begin the recall process against Richardville. Recall proponents had 180 days to gather 22,246 valid signatures in order to schedule a recall election.[1]

The efforts failed to collect enough signatures to place the recall on the November 2011 ballot.
