Senator John Gleason Issues Statement on Recall Efforts

courtesy Sen. Gleason

State Senator John Gleason (D-Flushing) issued a statement today to clarify his stance on recall efforts and to make clear that he has not offered his support for either side of any recall campaign in Michigan.

Gleason said “I have long stood opposed to the recall process in Michigan. I believe that it is too often used as a tool for political revenge, rather than for addressing the legitimate misconduct of an elected official. If you disagree with how a legislator voted on an issue, vote for his or her opponent at the next election. I have not, however, spoken against a particular recall effort as some campaigns have led voters to believe. My stance has always been about the issue in general and not any one specific recall campaign.”

The issue Gleason refers to is the campaign to recall Representative Paul Scott. The effort of those trying to retain Scott have said that Senator Gleason does not support the recall.
