Shirley Campbell

HOLLY, Michigan - Efforts to recall four Holly Village Council members failed Wednesday after members of Oakland County’s Election Commission disallowed all four recall petitions.


While former Village Councilwoman Shirley Campbell’s name along with her attorney, Tom Ryan was on the recall petitions, Campbell filed recall petitions on behalf of the group with Oakland County on April 1. The petitions aimed to recall Village President Ryan Bladzik, and council members, George Kullis, Debra Musgrave, and Chris Rankin for their roles in approving the June 11, 2013 motion to disband the village’s police dispatch center and sell most of the remaining equipment to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Department for $20,000.

Village President Ryan Bladzik

HOLLY, Michigan – Four Holly council members could be up for recall in November should Oakland County’s Board of Election Commissioners find the petitions submitted by a concerned group of Holly citizens to be valid.


Represented by attorney, Tom Ryan, a group of Holly citizens is pushing to recall President Ryan Bladzik, and council members, Chris Rankin, George Kullis and Debra Musgrave for their roles in approving the June 11, 2013 motion to disband the village’s police dispatch center and sell most of the remaining equipment to the Oakland County Sheriff’s Office for $20,000.


While the petitions were officially signed on Tuesday at the Oakland County Clerk’s office in Pontiac, members of the citizens’ group wish to remain anonymous until the Board of Election Commissioners discusses the matter later this month.

HOLLY, Michigan - A Holly couple is hoping the community can help in locating their beloved dog that has been on the run for nearly two weeks.


Ted and Christa Kenyon are asking residents to keep an eye out for their 2-year old Norwegian Buhund, Storm, who managed to escape their fenced in Evans Road kennel on Sunday, March 16.


Initially, Storm was seen running west across N. Holly Road near Evans. “She ran into the woods behind the white farmhouse,” Ted said. “She was seen a short time later on the west side of Kennedy Lake.” Ted said the man called to her, but that she turned and ran eastward across the lake. The next morning, Storm was seen along Belford Road, west of N. Holly near Ravens Wood Rd.

Councilman Chris Rankin

HOLLY, Michigan – Council members will have until May 13 to consider amending five sections of the Holly Charter, per the recommendations of the Charter and Ordinance Review Committee.


Charter and Ordinance Review Committee Chairman, Chris Rankin explained the committee’s recommendation during the March 25 Holly Village Council meeting.


Of the five proposed amendments, Rankin said the first would amend Section 4.1 to lower the eligibility age of council members from the current 21-year age requirement to 18.  Additionally, Rankin said the committee recommended striking section 5.3 which requires that the village hold a regular March election, as well as section 6.4 which requires the village to establish a health officer.
