Recall attempt fails

A recall attempt against Pscholka has failed.

Recall language targeting Pscholka was approved in May but recall organizers were unable to gather the necessary 6,718 petition signatures in his district before the November deadline.

On his official Facebook page Pscholka made the following statement Monday:

“Recall fails. I have stayed focused on solving problems, serving constituents and making Michigan a better place to get and create a job. The recall was about raw, partisan politics that SW Michigan folks are tired of hearing about. We have made great progress getting spending under control, creating a budget surplus, reforming government and improving the business climate.”
