Retired police officer Mike Sherzer wins open seat in Ward 4
Two incumbents were ousted Tuesday as Battle Creek voters opted for a newcomer and a former representative to be on their next city commission. Ward 3 Commissioner Sherry Sofia, who regained her seat in 2011 after losing the previous election, was knocked off the commission again, this time by political newcomer Dean Newsome.
