Troy mayor recalled

Janice Daniels had been Troy’s mayor for just a year.

She was strongly aligned with the Tea Party movement.

And she quickly became embroiled in controversy for using anti-gay slurs, and fighting a federally-funded transit center.

So a citizen group launched a recall campaign. And it’s succeeded, with about 52-percent of Troy voters saying yes.

Troy’s current Council President Pro-Tem will serve as acting mayor.

The Council will then appoint a new mayor within 30 days. A new mayoral election will be held next November.
