An effort to recall John Moolenaar, a member of the Republican Party, from his elected position representing District 36 in the Michigan State Senate was launched in the summer of 2011.

On September 7, 2011 the Midland County Election Commission approved recall language submitted against Moolenaar. The submission was the third attempt by Hay Township supervisor Dennis J. Perry in his efforts to recall Moolenaar. The language of the first two petitions was rejected as unclear.

The approved language cited Moolenaar's support for Michigan House Bill 4361 (S-5), which allows for taxation of public retiree pensions.[1] It was unclear how many signatures needed to be collected - Perry was instructed to contact each of the 10 county clerks in the district in order to determine the number.[2]

The effort failed to collect enough signatures to put the recall on the ballot.
