Flint, Mich., Mayor Appeals Recall Efforts to Remove Her as Mayor

This action follows a lengthy trash hauler debate, which ultimately ended in Republic Services receiving a one-year hauling contract with the City of Flint.

Flint, Mich., Mayor Karen Weaver paid $175 on March 17 to appeal the approved recall language over the city’s ongoing trash debate. If the language, which was submitted by Flint resident Art Woodson and approved earlier this month by the Genesee County Election Commission, makes it through the court, Woodson would still have to get approximately 5,800 signatures to put the recall on the ballot.
