The Committee to Recall Gov.
Rick Snyder campaign falls
short in their attempt to
place a recall vote on the
ballot against the Govenor.
Still, Recall Governor Rick Snyder and their efforts by the group thousands of volunteers have made a statement, that it’s possible try to recalling a sitting Michigan Governor during the states’ polarized political climate.
“We’re not going to make the recall number required to place a vote for or against Gov. Snyder term in office, on February’s primary ballot,” Townsend stated.
“We had volunteers in all of Michigan’s 83 counties. Whether our volunteers, collected one signature, one hundred signatures or a thousand, their worked counted and was highly appreciated. Every single volunteer was wonderful. They were amazing,” she cited.
“For us, to have gotten as far we did, with minimum expense, surprised many people,” Townsend stated.
“Recalling a governor nationally has only been done twice since the birth of the United States. What we accomplished in Michigan has made many people understand that it’s possible”, she cited.
“There has been talk of this (another campaign to recall Gov. Snyder). If our volunteers want to take this effort forward, we would support it,” Townsend cited. "But, if we are going to do this again, we’ll have to correct any mistakes during the first recall attempt campaign.”
“The plan would be to put things in place ahead of time to eliminate any missteps. Take the proper time to organize the proper support. Michigan’s recall clarity period is 90 days, is very fast pace,” Townsend cited.
“Money and proper organization before-hand is the key to achieving success on a campaign to recall any Governor in Michigan or nationwide. Once we were to have all of these important steps in place, we would re-approach unionized groups to gain their backing for any future efforts,” she stated.
