Nine will vie for four seats in Imlay City


LAPEER COUNTY — The stage has been set for village and city races in November’s general election.

In the Tri-City area, contested races will take place in Imlay City and Dryden. In Almont, just five candidates—all incumbents—filed for five open seats.

In Imlay City, voters will choose four winners from a sizeable field of nine filers.

Those candidates include Charles Boadway, Shane Collison, Stu Davis, Joe DeLuca, Philip Fulks, Amy Lachat, Al Ramirez, Jonathan Roy and Barbara Yockey.

Davis is the only incumbent among the group. Those commissioners due to end their service on the board include Kelly Villanueva, Frank Demske and Greg Rowden.

The three top vote-getters will each earn four year terms and the candidate finishing in fourth place will earn a two-year term.

In Dryden, three candidates will vie for two seats on the village council. They include Brandon Jones, Stan Roszczewski and Travis White. Jones and Roszczewski both currently serve on the council.

The first and second place finishers will earn four year terms.

In Almont, there will be no contested race come November. All five candidates wish to continue serving in their current roles. They include Jacqueline Calka, Peter Feldman, Wayne Glasser, Steve Schneider and Melinda Steffler.

Per village charter, the top three vote-getters in the November election will serve four-year terms, while the fourth and fifth highest finishers will serve two years.

The general election will take place on November 8.
