Primary Election Results

The first round of elections are over and the results reveal Paul Spaniola and Susan Sniegowski will go head to head for the 51st Circuit Court Judge seat, in November's election. It was a close race between the Mason County Prosecutor and former prosecutor... but Spaniola took the number one spot for most votes. Although, Lake County Prosecuting Attorney Craig Cooper had the highest number of votes in Lake County... it wasn't enough to advance. Other winners for the night include Wally Taranko who took the most votes to hold Mason County's District One County Commission seat and Steven Hull will be District Five's new representative.  


Polls Open for August Primaries

Polls are now open for August primaries. Local residents will have a choice between four candidates for 51st Circuit Court Judge. The candidates include Mason County Prosecuting Attorney Paul Spaniola, Lake County Prosecutor Craig Cooper, attorney Susan Sniegowski and Mason County defense attorney David Glancy. Two will move on and face each other in November elections. Two Mason County commission seats are also being sought after. In addition to candidates, residents will also have proposals to vote on. The major one being the millage increase request by the Mason-Oceana 9-1-1 service. They are asking voters, from both counties, to approve a six-year .14 mill tax levy to support the services and operations of 9-1-1. Other proposals include a Dial-A-Ride tax increase and a Meade Township millage. Polls are open until 8pm.
