Election 2012: Mid-Michigan Roundup
Mid-Michigan voters approved several ballot items Tuesday and elected a local state representative to the bench.
Voters approved all ballot proposals in the city of Lansing and Ingham County by wide margins. In Lansing, the sale of the Waverly Golf Course for development got the green light, as well as a measure that cuts the number of required city council meetings. In Ingham County, one proposal increases millage funding for public transportation for the elderly. Others extend current funding millages for 911 service and juvenile justice programs.
Meridian Township voters defeated a rezoning proposal that would have made way for a proposed student housing development. In a local judicial race, outgoing state rep Mark Meadows won his bid for 54B District Court Judge. Attorney Jim Jamo won his 30th District Circuit Court contest. And in a divisive battle, challenger Jeff Hall soundly beat incumbent Stuart Goodrich for the GOP nomination for Delhi Township Supervisor. Hall will face Democratic newcomer C.J. Davis in November.
