TUSCOLA COUNTY — Following Tuesday’s village elections, there will be some new faces on councils and some moving into new positions on the council.
From a field of 11 candidates, voters in the village of Akron selected four people to represent them on the council.
Juanita Hollister received 50 votes for president to edge out Bill Schneider who received 22 votes.
Hollister has served on the council for several years as a trustee.
The winners of the three trustee seats were incumbents Brenda Ryan with 37 votes, Barbara J. Tahash with 43 votes, and newcomer Teri Nusz with 47 votes.
Sarah Boudreau received 26 votes, Carol E. Dworzecki received 14 votes, Laureen Joslin received 34 votes, Matthew D. Machelski received 14 votes, and write-in Heather Behm received 3 votes.
In the village of Cass City, incumbent Carl Palmateer received 113 votes for president.
The three trustee seats went to incumbents Michael Kirn who received 71 votes, Jenny L. Zawilinski who received 84 votes and newcomer Nancy K. Barrios who received 81 votes.
William C. Hartzell received 70 votes.
In the village of Kingston, incumbent Robin LaFond received 48 votes to continue as president edging out William Miller who received 42 votes.
For trustee, incumbents Patricia A. Randall received 51 votes and Jeremy M. Romain received 46 votes. Newcomer Andrew Crousore received 17 votes.
Scott Fetting received 45.
Initially, there was a question if a vote for a Doug Fetting would be counted toward a vote for Scott Fetting, but the Tuscola County Board of Canvassers determined that vote would not be counted.
“So he lost by one vote,” said Tuscola County Clerk Margie White.
In the village of Mayville, incumbent Clare D. Fryers received 113 votes for president to edge out Sam W. Reece who received 53 votes.
The three trustee seats went to Sue Marlow who received 111 votes, to Bruce McGhee who received 108 votes, and to Susan Atkinson who received 75 votes.
Wanda Topham received 44 votes and Barbara J. Valentine received 22 votes.
