A recall petition against Flint Mayor Karen Weaver cleared a major hurdle today.
The Genesee County Board of Electors voted two to one to approve language for the recall petition. The decision allows Weaver’s critics to begin collecting signatures.
Organizer Arthur Woodson says people are upset with the way Mayor Weaver has been running city hall, much in the same way they were when they voted against her predecessor in 2015.
“The people spoke back then and it was because of the water. And people are speaking again because of the water,” says Woodson.
