The language has been approved for a third recall against Benton Harbor's mayor, and it is the same as the second recall effort.

The recalls all focus on Hightower’s vote regarding the city income tax proposal in 2013.

The Berrien County election commission approved the wording of this third recall effort yesterday, opening a 180-day window for organizers to gather signatures.

Reporting partners at The Herald Palladium say they must gather 393 signatures during a 60-day period within that window.

Neither of the previous recall efforts made it to the ballot because some of the signatures were not valid.
