A rally kicked off at the capitol Saturday afternoon to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder.
Protesters say they no longer want him in office, because they're unhappy with how he's spending the state's money.
Mirella Lang was one of the roughly 100 demonstrators that participated in the three-hour rally. She was the first to sign the "Recall Snyder" petition and says she's most upset about the cuts he has made to education.
"I'm a teacher in Macomb County. We've been taking pay cuts," she said. "Teachers have been asked to pay more for their insurance. They are trying to get us to pay more for our pensions and/or take away our pensions and it's unfair."
The group "Michigan Rising" organized the event. Its spokesperson, Bruce Fealk said many are also fired up about the state's emergency financial manager law.
"The emergency managers are destroying our democracy and no one seems to care about our democracy having their vote count in the communities in which they live," he said.
The group's goal at the rally was to start collecting 1,000,000 signatures on its "Recall Snyder" petition which needs to be gathered within the next 90 days.
"If successful, what would happen is, there would be a state-wide ballot initiative on the ballot in November. If we're successful there, if the state of Michigan calls to recall Governor Snyder, there would be a special election in February 2013," Fealk said.
However, not everyone thinks the governor is doing a bad job.
Matt Frendewey, a spokesperson for the Michigan Republican Party said the "Michigan Rising" group tried to do this last year, but failed. He thinks it will fail again this year.
"These folks want to say that everything is wrong and the sky is falling which just isn't the case and it's a shame," Frendewey said. "Michigan's unemployment rate is 8.5 percent, the lowest in four years. Our job creation is outpacing the national average."
Six news contacted Governor Snyder's office for comment. A spokesperson said the governor respects the group's right to protest, but will continue to do the things he feels are necessary to fix the state's economy.
