Gladstone Recalls Go Out for Signatures

The recall effort against 2 members of the Gladstone school board takes a step forward.

The Committee to Improve Gladstone Schools is trying to recall Steve O’Driscoll and Gary Micheau.

The Delta County Elections Board has voted the petitions against them are worded clearly enough for voters to understand.

2 years ago, the 2 voted to pay the Michigan Association of School Boards about $5,000.

That was the reason for the recall that the paperwork mentioned.

The money was for a superintendent search.

Dr. Jay Kulbertis was one of the candidates the search turned up, and he ended up getting the job.

The people who wrote the recall petitions have 6 months to get signatures.

The recall group also targeted Linda Howlett and Gloria McDonnell, but the petitions against them have been withdrawn.
