The Sept. 11 expulsion of former state Rep. Cindy Gamrat, whose 80th District includes Saugatuck-Douglas, by her House peers has cre-ated a special primary and later, general election to fill the vacancy. Seeking the Republican nomination Nov. 3 are last year’s primary runner-up Mary Whiteford of Casco Township, Allegan County Commissioner Jim Storey of Holland, former county commissioner Bill Sage of Allegan, county circuit court law clerk Kevin Travis of Hopkins, Eric DeWitt of Holland, James Siver of Fennville and Gamrat herself, of Plainwell.

Local voters face interesting choices in the 2015 general election Tuesday, Nov. 3.

Six candidates will square off for three open two-year seats on the Douglas City Council. Incumbents Greg Harvath and Martha Hoexter will vie with former council member Lisa Greenwood and newcomers John Kelly, Kathryn Mooradian and Jim Petzing. All were profiled in last week’s issue.

The name of Jonathan Kinyon, who also filed to run but later withdrew from the race, will appear on the ballot too.

The Saugatuck council race is uncontested. Incumbents Bill Hess, Jeff Spangler and Chris Peterson are seeking return to their two-year seats.
