Close mayoral race in Benton Harbor, EM's proposals defeated
West Michigan reporter Lindsey Smith called in with these unofficial election results from the city of Benton Harbor.
In the race for Benton Harbor mayor, the city is reporting this result:
- James Hightower has 681 votes
- Wilce Cooke has 673 votes
It's a close race, so we'll have to watch how this one is "officially" called.
And whether the winner ends up being Hightower or Cooke, neither will have any official power.
The city is still under the power of state-appointed emergency manager Joe Harris.
Smith reports that all seven of Harris' proposed charter amendments in the city were voted down.
