Woodside to Challenge Banner in Northville Township Treasurer Race
The official list of candidates for the August 7 election was released, indicating Woodside would run for treasurer.
Karen Woodside, a candidate for the Northville Township Board of Trustees, declared Friday that she would be running for the office of treasurer.
The deadline to file was May 15. Woodside initially filed for all four seats – supervisor, clerk, treasurer and trustee – and had to choose one by Friday.
Woodside will now run for treasurer against current trustee Marjorie Banner in the August 7 primary. Both are Republicans and there is no Democrat to challenge in the November election. The two are vying to fill the seat now held by treasurer Richard Henningsen.
The official list now has three Republicans running, with no Democratic Party challengers, for the office of supervisor. Current trustee Christopher Roosen as well as Robert Nix and Edward Kriewall seek to replace Mark Abbo. Abbo announced in March that he will not seek re-election. For the office of township clerk, incumbent Sue Hillebrand runs unopposed as a Republican.
According to the official list from township clerk Hillebrand's office, Republican Tom Cameron is no longer running for a township trustee seat.
There are six running for four other seats on the township board of trustees:
- Marvin Gans, incumbent (Republican)
- Symantha Heath (Republican)
- Mindy Herrmann, incumbent (Republican)
- Michael Kheibari (Republican)
- Michael Nolta (Democrat)
- Frederick Shadko (Republican)
