Local Elections-Tuesday, Nov. 5

(AREA) -- Voters in Sanilac County will see three millage proposals and one contested city council race on the ballot Tuesday, November 5.

Croswell-Lexington Schools are seeking to annex into the St. Clair County Community College District and approval of the accompanying millage. If approved, the annexation proposal will save students enrolled in the Early College or duel enrollment programs at SC4 about $100 a credit hour. Peck Schools are asking voters to approve an additional 1.5-mill building and sinking fund millage. If approved, the district says approximately $101,145 will be raised in 2014. The Village of Deckerville is seeking a 2-mill police protection millage renewal, which is set to expire on December 31. The millage will raise approximately $26,840 the first year for the police budget.

Council races are being held in Sandusky, Brown City and Croswell. The only contested race is in the city of Sandusky where four candidates are seeking three seats on the council. Newcomer Brad Harris is challenging incumbents Roger Williamson, Maggie McNiven and Larry Mitchell. In Brown City, incumbents Patricia Jacobson, Bill Walters, and Julie Miller are seeking re-election. Kimberly Rhode and Ellen Brown are seeking re-election to the Brown City Library Board. Croswell voters will see incumbents Rob Butler, Mike McMillen and former council woman Cindy Fockler seeking the three terms on the council. Current councilman Larry Krawczyk is not seeking re-election.
