An effort to recall four members of the Flint Board of Education in Genesee County, Michigan was launched in October 2012.[1] The school board members facing recall were Ella Greene-Moton, Isaiah Oliver, Betty Ramsdell and Harold Woodson. The recall effort did not result in a recall election.


David Davenport, himself a member of the Flint Board of Education, initiated the recall effort. The reasons for recall listed on the petition included supporting the actions of the superintendent of the Flint Community Schools by allowing the misappropriation of county funds and Title 1 grant funds, and violating district policies that have allowed the Flint school district to go deeper into a $6 million dollars deficit.

Davenport has launched a number of previous recall efforts, including 16 such efforts in 2011.[1] Davenport was himself the target of a failed recall campaign in 2010.
