Michigan: Two Onaway City Councilors Survive recall vote
Onaway City Council members Bernie Schmeltzer and Ron Horrocks survived Tuesday's recall vote. 168 votes were cast -- Horrocks won by 18 votes, and Schmeltzer beat two challengers 85-59-23. The issue was eliminating the police department (of one) and hiring the county Sheriff's department. Both of these two will face reelection in November, as will Mayor Gary Wregglesworth, who beat back a recall in November 2013.
