11. Let's Hope....

Barry County is pretty rural so unless someone of his same Republican Party runs against him, the chances he's leaving office anytime soon is slim. Plus, he might have just been re-elected (as Michigan's Primary season is in August - and County Sheriff's run every four years) -- so he might feel as if he is "safe" to say what he disgusting said.

Now, the Sheriff can be Recalled starting six months from the date of his next term (assuming it starts in November 2020), however someone in Barry County would have to start it by having the petition language approved by the State Board of Canvassers, gather 25% of the number of total votes in the last election on the petition signatures of registered voters within the County AND vote him out in a recall election.

As you can tell, Recalling a Sitting Elected Official is not an easy hill to climb, however, if there is a determined group of Citizens, who knows.
