While it may have been a great night for Republicans in the rest of the country, the GOP took a big hit in the Ontwa Township recall election. The recall, over support for a wastewater treatment plant, saw four incumbents ousted, and one survive. There's talk that the wastewater plant could be repealed next week.
Supervisor John Brielmaier lost by 300 votes to John Bossler; Clerk Paula Ralph lost by seven votes to Teri McNaughton; Trustee Nathan Brosseau lost to Leon Gilliam; Trustee Norman Krupp lost to Mike Mrozcek. Treasurer Meryl Christensen survived.
