In brief

Recall effort shot down

DAVISON TWP. — A group of township residents tried to begin collecting signatures for a recall petition against all of the Davison Township Board of Trustees, but their effort was quickly dashed – for now.

The Genesee County Elections Board said due to the fact the board was just re-elected to their seats in November, they would need to be in office an entire year before anyone could attempt to recall them.

The gist of the effort focused on the board’s hiring of Fred Jackson as roads and bridges supervisor at a salary of $35,000 annually. Organizers of the recall said they think Jackson’s hiring is a conflict of interest because he works for Waldorf and Sons, contractors who have done a lot of work for the township.

The effort was led by at least two disgruntled residents in the township with social media support by Matthew Smith, Jr., who lost the 2016 election to be township clerk. He was also defeated in his write-in candidacy for the Davison Board of Education. It is not known if the recall will be pursued in November. — G.G.
