Troy Mayor To Face Recall? Group Submits 9,300 Signatures To County (With Video)

It's been a long three months for members of the political action committee Recall Janice Daniels, who gathered Tuesday morning outside the Oakland County Elections Division offices in Pontiac to celebrate the filing of a petition to recall embattled Troy Mayor Janice Daniels.

If 7,985 of the group's signatures are verified, the recall issue will be put to Troy voters in the Nov. 6 general election.

Daniels first came under fire in December for her anti-gay Facebook comment and has remained the center of controversy after voting against the Troy Transit Center (a scaled-down version was later approved), telling the Troy High School Gay-Straight Alliance she would bring in an expert to tell them the homosexual lifestyle is "dangerous" and writing a lengthy position paper some viewed as personally attacking city employees and council members.
