Troy— A group that hopes to remove Troy Mayor Janice Daniels filed recall petition language Monday with the Oakland County Clerk's Office.


The filings come days after the grassroots group Recall Janice Daniels formed a political action committee to raise funds for the initiative. The petitions were submitted by Matthew Binkowski, who is listed as treasurer of the committee. He could not be reached immediately on Monday.


One of the petitions seeks to recall Daniels for voting in favor of a resolution to reject $8.4 million in federal grant funding in December. The funding had been allocated for a Transit Center Project.


The second petition alleges Daniels refused to swear to support the city charter while taking the oath of office and later referred to the charter as a "whimsical document." It cites her two separate votes against the transit project and says she violated the City Council's rules of procedure by exceeding speaking time limitations while reading a position paper detailing her opposition to the center.
