Fighting Local Government Corruption - Part 10 of ?

I filed the Recall for Tony Barnes. The clarity hearing is next week.


Here is the final wording that I went with.

On May 8th, 2019 Dalton Township filed an injunction for a Temporary Restraining Order as well as a lawsuit against Hidden Creek Farm. No vote was taken for either of these actions at any public meeting prior to that. Both of these actions are direct violations of the Michigan Open Meetings Act. It is the job of the Township Supervisor, Tony Barnes, to see to it that the township acts in compliance with applicable laws, which he failed to do.

Here is part of the email that I received.

You are hereby notified, that a Clarity/Factual Hearing will be held on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, at 11:00 am in the Board of Commissioners room in the Michael E. Kobza Hall of Justice, 990 Terrace Street, 4th Floor, Muskegon MI.

The purpose of this hearing will be to determine whether each reason for each recall is factual and of sufficient clarity in the petitions submitted as provided by ACT 456 of 1982. You and/or your representative(s) are welcome to attend.

It's a public meeting. If you're interested in seeing if the county government will allow the citizens of Dalton Township to hold township officials accountable, then I would recommend coming. Here is the Facebook event I created: https://www.facebook.com/events/348063492777812/

Recalling an elected official is not an easy process. But, if no one is willing to hold government officials accountable then they become tyrants without anyone to answer to. And that's just what has happened in Dalton Township. It's time that that changes. The change to a more transparent and accountable government requires bravery and courage on the part of citizens. Heroic deeds require heroes.
