Four candidates will face off in a June 10 runoff election for two seats on the Sparta Township Council after a write-in candidate prevented a candidate from winning 50% of the vote. The top vote getter missed the park by 99 votes. Newcomer Christopher Curry (1,123) and incumbent Scott Seelagy (1,082) will again face challenger Carey Ann Shaftan (873) and incumbent Jerry Murphy (845). Brian Rush received 754 write-in votes and has not yet endorsed a candidate in the runoff.
Curry and Shaftan were running mates.
