Wailand wins second ward seat

Wailand

Judge Rodney Clark ruled in favor of Steve Wailand on Friday after the city filed a motion saying it had no further evidence to present at trial.

Judge Clark ordered a full trial earlier this month after Wailand, an aldermanic candidate for Macomb’s second ward, filed a lawsuit contesting election results. Judge Clark granted the city the opportunity to present additional information after Wailand contested the results. Wailand said he should have been declared the winner over incumbent Kay Hill.
