MONTCALM TOWNSHIP — In a race for Montcalm Township supervisor, incumbent Michael Adams, an independent, was elected to a full term for the first time.
“I am humbled and honored that the residents of Montcalm Township have once again elected me to serve as their supervisor,” Adams said Tuesday night. “I am looking forward to seeing what the next four years bring.”
Adams took over mid-term after his predecessor was recalled.
Montcalm Township voters cast 732 votes (56.44 percent) for Adams compared to Republican Ron Trachet, who received 560 votes (43.18 percent).
Trachet did not return messages seeking comment Tuesday night.
In a previous interview with The Daily News, Adams said although he has goals if re-elected, he was not looking to make any major changes in the next term.
“Things are going very well now,” he said. “We have made huge changes in our efficiency, accuracy and accessibility since I was elected. For the most part, I will just keep leading us in the positive direction that we are moving now.”
Adams said the most important thing about the position is building trust and respect between the residents and the board.
“I hope that we are able to continue improving our services and efficiency for all of the residents of our great township,” he said Tuesday. “Thank you for believing in me.”
