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.
