Stuart Bloomfield, Laura Grubaugh and Ron Lowry recall, Jerome Township, Michigan (2014)
Jerome Township resident Alan Anger officially launched the recall effort against Bloomfield, Grubaugh and Lowry in January 2014 by filing a petition. The petition Anger filed with the Midland County election commission for approval cited as the reason for recall the officials' decision to levy a 1 percent administrative property tax.

A notice of intent to recall was first filed on December 13, 2014. On January 2, 2014, the Midland County Election Commission approved the petition language, though there was some debate about the use of the word "tax" versus "fee." Bloomfield objected to the approval of the petition language, which included the word "tax." "I would simply say that I believe the word 'tax' is not factual. We have no authority to levy a tax," Bloomfield said.
