A recall petition has been filed against Benton Harbor Commissioner Trenton Bowen by William Spinks, a member of Mayor James Hightower's church. This recall, spearheaded by Hightower, is the doing of Whirlpool Corporation.
Trenton Bowen, age 25, is the only commissioner in at least 25 years to present an idea which would bring revenue to the city.
Whirlpool is on a mission of gentrification: rid the city of Black residents, steal the land, build a new city for the wealthy, for golfers, for a resort. By any means necessary. Whirlpool uses residents who can be bought to carry out their mission. Hightower is Whirlpool's stooge, and they want Bowen out of office.
The recall petition uses the very same wording that James Cornelius used to recall Mayor Hightower. The clarity hearing for Hightower's recall has already been held.
A clarity hearing for the Trenton Bowen recall has been scheduled for Dec. 6, 9am in the boardroom of the Berrien County Administration Center, 701 Main St., St. Joseph, Mi. Please attend if you can.
We continue to be extremely disappointed in Hightower's collusion with Whirlpool, and his inablity to be honest and truly moral. Think what we could accomplish in Benton Harbor if ALL residents stood up against the oppressor.
If a tree falls in a forest and lands on Mayor James Hightower and you cannot hear the tree or the scream, I bet you will hear the applause.
