Tea Party Scorecard
The Independent Tea Party Patriots, a Michigan Tea Party group, grades the votes of this and every other Michigan legislator on “core tea party issues” in a regularly-updated scorecard. 100% is considered an ideal rating.
January 2011 - March 2012
Phil Pavlov received a 67% rating on the January 2011 - March 2012 Tea Party Scorecard.
On their third attempt a group of citizens saw recall language they submitted against Pavlov unanimously approved by the St. Clair County Election Commission on October 24, 2011. The language stated that Pavlov failed to represent his district by voting in support of HB 4214 and HB 4361. The bills respectively addressed the authority of emergency managers and the elimination/reduction of various income tax deductions and credits. The group had to collect 20,466 signatures during a 90-day window within 180 days of the approval of the language.
The group did not collect enough signatures to put a recall election on the November 2011 ballot. Organizers then attempted to put a recall on the August 7, 2012 ballot, but again fell short on the number of signatures required.
