Troy— Recall petition language was filed Monday in an effort to oust Janice Daniels from office, while Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson waded into the fray over the controversial Troy mayor.

The petitions were filed with the county clerk days after the group Recall Janice Daniels formed a political action committee to raise money for the effort.

One petition targets her for voting in December to reject $8.4 million in federal grant money for a transit center. The other alleges she refused to swear support for the city charter while taking the oath of office.

Recall organizers also claim she violated city rules by exceeding speaking time limits at a City Council meeting to read a position paper about her opposition to the center and embarrassed Troy by allegedly telling high school students the "homosexual lifestyle is dangerous."
