There is A Lot Going on this Election

An election is coming! The media and social networks are alive with what seems to be a chaotic and agonizing storm of sensational information that appears foreign to our daily lives. Claims and counter claims, accusations, bold statements bordering on the idiotic and glorious commentary on how we cannot survive without this or that permeates the lines of communication. This is mostly found at the Federal and State election levels. But there is a whole other world of elections that may have as much effect to our daily lives as the Federal and State elections.

A much calmer atmosphere exists in this year’s local election cycle. Local governments are facing voter evaluation by way of the elective process. Most current office holders at the County and Township levels up for re-election. Some of our fellow peers will run against incumbents and some of our peers will run against each other to fill positions being vacated by current office holders. In Isabella County, we have assembled a list of positions that are opening up. While we believe the information to be accurate, it may not contain elections that we are not aware of:
