Willow Run school board recall effort can go forward

The Ann Arbor News Online
Language seeking to recall three Willow Run school board members was approved by a 2-1 vote of the Washtenaw County Board of Election Commissioners Wednesday.

Willow Run First (For the Inspiration and Recognition of Students and Teachers), a grass-roots organization, submitted the language to recall school board President Claudette Braxton, Andy Blakita and Clifford Smith.

Travis Greer, a Willow Run First member and a former school board member, said after the meeting that group members will begin circulating the petitions as soon as possible.

According to the state election law, the group has 180 days to gather 1,583 signatures, which is 25 percent of residents in Superior and Ypsilanti townships who voted in the 2006 gubernatorial election.
