His largest contributor was the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, which donated $1,000 to his campaign.

Recall efforts

On June 1, 2011, Jack Jensen filed language with the Huron County Clerk seeking the recall of Damrow from office, citing failure by Damrow to properly report campaign finance information, as well as supporting legislation that could hurt families, seniors, schools and local government. The clerk held a hearing on June 13 to determine if the language submitted “is or is not of sufficient clarity to enable the officer whose recall is sought and the electors to identify the course of conduct which is the basis for the recall.”[2]

At that meeting the election commission rejected the language for being too editorialized.[3] Jensen submitted new, less complicated language, which was unanimously approved at a meeting on June 30. Organizers announced they would immediately begin collecting the 7,679 signatures necessary for a recall.[4]

The recall campaign aimed to have the signatures collected by August 5 in order to make the November ballot, but fell short. If they are able to collect the signatures by September 28 a vote for recall would be placed on the February 2012 ballot.[5]

Personal

Damrow and his wife Kim have two children.
