Petitions submitted to Recall Marshall School Board Members Richard Lindsey, Matt Davis, and Shawna Gamble

Petitions submitted to Recall Marshall School Board Members Richard Lindsey, Matt Davis, and Shawna Gamble

The Calhoun County Clerk-Elections Office received Recall Petition Language from Albion City registered elector David Atchison desiring to recall the Marshall School Board Members Richard Lindsey, Matt Davis, and Shawna Gamble.  Michigan election law requires the County Election Commission to review the language of recall petitions before they can be circulated. 

The Calhoun County Clerk, County Treasurer, and the County Probate Judge will hold a Clarity/Factual Review Hearing on Monday January 24th beginning at 8:15am in the Calhoun County Building located at 315 West Green Street in Marshall. The meeting will convene in Boardroom 3-C08 (the Board of Commissioners Chambers on the third floor).


The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether each reason for the recall stated in the petitions is factual and of sufficient clarity to enable the officer whose recall is sought and the electors to identify the course of conduct that is the basis for the recall. The hearing is NOT for the purpose of debating the merit of the allegations. The Commission does not have the authority to rule on the reasons for recall as only the clarity and factual nature of the recall language is subject to the Commission’s review.

Several references to Recall law and procedures are posted on our Calhoun County Clerk Misc. Election Information webpage  (scroll down to “Recall Information”). Details such as the recall language submitted, sponsor, officeholder, signature requirements, timelines, and procedures are included in the ‘Summary of Details’ document.
