FLINT, MI — The petition drive and the wording on the recall ballot question gave us meaning. It was about Rizzo. There were not enough votes that held the Mayor’s involvement in the Rizzo contract were deserving of recall. The Mayor received 53% of the vote. That made moot any argument about the 16 candidates and the ludicrous process of recall in the Statute.

What was not the meaning? Community opposition to the Mayors sponsored 30-year water contract with Detroit was not on the table. The regular Mayorial election is in two years. This issue will be a driving force then.

Make your opinion known on the Water contract to Mayor and Council now as if your quality of life depends on it.
There was only one issue in the recall election. There will be a hundred in the next regular election. @TerryBankert

    Very pessimistic attitude tge Recall did what it was in better interest of Flint residents. No one in Flint can say the information was presented on issuses within lstate and local governance.
    We got Weaver on the ballot a feat few believed possible.The public that is watching,reading,protesting,attending City council reg meeing’s and committee meetings have know whats rotten in Flint/Denmark.
    Political manipulation by preachers; political operatives,coattail hustlers have contributed to the destruction of Flint reaidents due process.
    Flint residents have been divided by race baiters ,some nonprofits; celebrity popins.
    Tighten your seat belts it’s gonna get rougher and Flint reaidents are about to get fleeced again.
