Troy Mayor Janice Daniels lost her elected seat when voters approved a recall on Nov. 6, 2012.

TROY, Mich. -

An effort to recall Troy Mayor Janice Daniels is picking up steam after the Oakland County Elections Division confirmed the petition signatures needed to get the measure on the November ballot.

According the the Elections Division, petitioners collected 8,882 valid signatures. Only 8,000 were required to get the recall on the ballot.

Mayor Daniels now has until 4:30 p.m. July 12 to challenge the recall effort with the elections office. If she fails to meet that deadline, or does not challenge it, the issue will appear on the November ballot.

The group “Recall Janice Daniels” started the campaign after Mayor Daniels rejected a multi-million dollar federal grant to fun a new transit center’s construction.

The city council eventually approved a smaller project.
