Wayne County commissioner faces second recall drive

  • Updated

WAYNE -- Another recall effort has arisen against Wayne County Commissioner Kelvin Wurdeman.

The recall drive by Jerold Meyer began Jan. 24. Wurdeman has until Wednesday to file his defense statement.

The latest recall affidavit cites Wurdeman's conviction after pleading no contest to charges that he stole a truckload of publicly owned scrap metal. He was fined $1,000.

The first recall effort accused Wurdeman of removing dirt from a landowner's field without permission and using it for a nearby road problem. He denied the allegation.

A Wayne County judge ordered election officials to abandon the first recall effort because the petition paperwork used to gather signatures was flawed.
