Mackinac Center President Joseph G. Lehman writes in a recent Grand Rapids Press Op-Ed that the Legislature should resist the temptation to make recall elections more difficult for voters to undertake.

“Recall elections aren’t intended to allow removal of officials for certain reasons only,” Lehman said. “Recall elections are intended to allow the people themselves, not just the Legislature, to directly remove officials between elections.”

Lehman wrote the Op-Ed in response to a Press editorial that said recalls should only be used in cases of “corruption, negligence or dereliction of duty.”
