LANSING (WWJ) – Fire Rick Snyder. That’s what one group is attempting to do. Tim Kramer of “Michigan Citizens United” says group members want to recall the Governor for a slew of reasons:

“We disagree with his EFM law,” Kramer told WWJ Newsradio 950. “We don’t like the fact that he’s raising taxes on the middle and poor people and giving the big corporations the tax break. We don’t like the fact that he removed the Michigan film incentive. I know the state paid out money, but they were receiving more money than they were paying out.”

Kramer says they are looking for 1.1 million signatures on their “Fire Rick Snyder” petition. “We’ve got about 12,000 on our Facebook page. We’ve got about 8,000 on our main website, plus word of mouth is traveling fast.”

Kramer says Governor Snyder is trying to run a dictatorship by stripping away elected officials’ powers.

The Michigan Republican Party says the recall effort is largely the work of teacher’s unions in the state.
