Recalled Troy mayor Janice Daniels loses bid for City Council

TROY, Mich. (AP) - A former Troy mayor who was recalled from office last year over her anti-gay remarks and opposition to a federally funded transit center lost her bid for a seat on the City Council in her northern Detroit suburb.

Janice Daniels was one of nine candidates for three seats on the council in Tuesday's election. Edward Pennington, Ellen Hodorek and Wade Fleming were the top vote-getters. Daniels came in fourth.

Daniels was elected mayor of the city of 80,000 in November 2011, and voters removed her from office a year later on a 52 percent to 48 percent vote.

Recall petitions cited her anti-gay stand, opposition to the $8.4 million transit center and her criticism of public employees.
