Discontent fuels township recall-fundraiser set for Thursday

If support were measured by the gallon the resident activists who are hosting the Recall-4 fundraiser event this Thursday have a nearly full tank. Organizers of the Plymouth Township United Citizens Recall 4 campaign will host a fundraiser and petition signing event at EG Nicks Restaurant, 500 Forest Ave, in Plymouth from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 4.
The group organizers, who are planning several events to collect signatures to recall four targeted Plymouth Township board members, say they are fed up with the officials who are unwilling to listen to citizens and no longer represent the interests of the majority. Printed brochures cite 10 key examples to support the view that since taking office two years ago, Supervisor Richard Reaume, Treasurer Ron Edwards, Clerk Nancy Conzelman and Trustee Kay Arnold have consistently voted as a block effectively controlling the outcome of all votes.
“We cannot afford two more years of ignoring public opinion and spending heavily on recreation while ignoring the needs of public safety.”
In a 10-minute hearing last month before Wayne County Circuit Court Chief Judge Robert J. Colombo, Jr., the judge tossed out the appeals of three of the four-targeted board members, Treasurer Ron Edwards, Clerk Nancy Conzelman and Trustee Kay Arnold. Reaume conceded the language on the petitions against him was clear and opted not to appeal the Oct. 6 decision of the Wayne County Elections Commission.
A percentage of the proceeds from all food sales on Thursday night will go to the committee to help fund advertising and printing costs for the recall campaign.
