BH Commissioners And Citizens Discuss Recall Election

Though it was not on agenda, the recall of Benton Harbor Mayor James Hightower was discussed throughout Tuesday night's City Commission meeting. Pastor Steven McCoy spoke out against the special vote set for May 6. He says the commission needs to stand together in support of one another, even if they have differences.



Speaking on the practicality of the recall was Commissioner Juanita Henry.



When referencing the recall, Mayor Hightower said the City is tired and needs rest. Citizens have gone through a lot in the last couple years including being taken over by the state, volatile elections and heavy differences. He continues, though, to look forward in moving the city back to local control.
