May 9, 2018

Voters went to the polls yesterday in several cities across the state, including Jackson, Kalamazoo and Kalkaska.

Michigan Radio’s senior news analyst Jack Lessenberry and Morning Edition host Doug Tribou discuss the results.

Residents in two communities said yes to major school bond proposals: $86.7 million in Jackson and nearly $97 million in Kalamazoo.

In Kalkaska, voters recalled controversial village president Jeff Sieting and elected political newcomer Harley Wales.
