Recalled Troy mayor plans to run for city council

Aug 14, 2013

She's not going away. Janice Daniels, the former mayor of Troy who was recalled by voters last November, plans to make a run for Troy city council.

Lauren Abdel-Razzaq reports for the Detroit News that Daniels has filed a petition to run.

Daniels was recalled after making several well-publicized statements.  More from the Detroit News:

Daniels took heat for rejecting federal dollars for a transit center, making disparaging comments about homosexuals, calling the city charter a “whimsical” document and arguing with other city leaders during meetings.

In a special election in May, voters elected Dane Slater, who had been appointed to fill in as mayor, to hold the city’s top elected office until November 2015, when Daniels’ original term expires.
