Petition Submitted to Recall Marshall Township Trustee Bob Lyng

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEWednesday, March 15, 2023
The Calhoun County Clerk – Elections Office received Recall Petition Language from Marshall Township registered voter Glenn Kowalske desiring to recall Marshall Township Trustee Robert Lyng.

Michigan Election Law requires the County Election Commission to review the language of recall petitions before they can be circulated. The Calhoun County Clerk, Calhoun County Treasurer, and Calhoun County Prosecutor will hold a Clarity/Factual Review Hearing on Thursday, March 30, 2023, beginning at 9 a.m. in the Calhoun County Building located at 315 W Green St, Marshall, Mich. The meeting will convene in Boardroom 3-C08 (The Board of Commissioners Chambers on the third floor).

The purpose of the hearing is to determine whether each reason for the recall stated in the petitions is factual and of sufficient clarity to enable the officer whose recall is sought, and the electors, to identify the course of conduct that is the basis for the recall. The hearing is NOT for the purpose of debating the merit of the allegations. The Commission does not have the authority to rule on the reasons for recall as only the clarity and factual nature of the recall language is subject to the Commission’s review.

Several references to Recall Law and procedures are posted on our Calhoun County Clerk Elections Website,, under FOIA, Recalls, and Recounts. Details such as the recall language submitted, sponsor, officeholder, signature requirements, and procedures are included in the Summary of Details document.
