Troy Mayor could face a recall campaign this November
Troy Mayor Janice Daniels could face a recall campaign next November if members of the Oakland County Election Commission approve language on recall petitions filed by the political action committee "Recall Janice Daniels," and if organizers get enough valid signatures.
More from the Detroit News:
One petition targets her for voting in December to reject $8.4 million in federal grant money for a transit center. The other alleges she refused to swear support for the city charter while taking the oath of office.
Recall organizers also claim she violated city rules by exceeding speaking time limits at a City Council meeting to read a position paper about her opposition to the center and embarrassed Troy by allegedly telling high school students the "homosexual lifestyle is dangerous."
Mayor Daniels first came under fire when an anti-gay slur she posted on Facebook was unearthed.
The post was in reaction to New York's gay marriage law and was made prior to her term as Troy Mayor. It read:
“I think I am going to throw away my I love New York carrying bag now that queers can get married there.”
