Michigan: Split vote in Onaway, with recalled city official winning a full term
Fascinating result in the Onaway recall. Mayor Gary Wregglesworth (144-107) and City Commissioner Chuck Abshagen (134-115) survived their recall race. City Commissioner Jessie Horrocks lost bin a squeaker to Roger Marsh (114-112). However, Horrocks and Abshagen were also on the ballot for a new term starting in January. Both of them won (Abshagen 131, Horrocks, 105). So, despite being recalled, Horrocks will restart in office in January.
