Robert Ficano recall, Wayne County, Michigan (2010)
Ficano is up for re-election in November 2010.
Joyce Ivory, president of American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees Local 1659, and Thomas Richards, president of AFSCME Local 101, jointly filed the recall petition. They object to the fact that Ficano has ordered furlough days to county workers.
Path to the ballot
Wayne County election officials must approve the wording on a recall petition before it can be circulated and so far, the wording that has been presented to them has been rejected for clarity reasons.
