Breaking: Grand Haven Cross Issue Could Be Decided By Voters May 5th After Recall Papers Filed

 Tonight, I released the following statement:

"It's time for Grand Haven to stand up to atheist extremist and anti-Christian bully Mitch Kahle-decades of tradition in our City is something worth fighting for.

That's why today, I filed with Ottawa County Clerk Justin Roebuck's office the papers required to initiate the recall process against Grand Haven City Councilman Bob Monetza. If the efforts are successful, after the May 5th election,  a  new Council member will join the two existing votes, and the Cross could be back up as it has every May for over 50 years.

Giving Grand Haven residents a chance to vote for the direction they want the City to take on this issue lets Grand Havenders have a real voice in this process.

Capitulating to bullies like atheist extremist Mitch Kahle isn't what Grand Haven is all about, and I believe the vote on May 5th will reflect that fact.

That Cross isn't coming down without a fight-a fight the Grand Haven City Attorney said the City would likely win. That shouldn't be a surprise, as Kahle has been wrong multiple times before on issues of Constitutional Law and Separation of Church and State doctrine. He has a lot to learn.

I am not affiliated with the "Keep The Grand Haven Cross" group's effort to buy Dewey Hill, though I wish them all the best.
