CATA millage looks to pass; 69th House district GOP race ongoing
Things look bright for two transportation millages voted on in Ingham County, and the race for the Republican nomination to the state House looks to be leaning one way.
The first millage would allocate funds to transportation programs that help elderly and disabled people get around. At 11:21, 20,361 votes were in favor and 10,211 votes were against. The second millage would merge two millages for the Capital Area Transportation Authority, or CATA. It currently stands with 13,679 votes in favor and 8,222 against.
Further, Susan McGillicuddy, 10-year Meridian Township supervisor, has opened a wide lead over opponent Frank Lambert, a General Motors Corp. lineworker. At 11:23 p.m., McGillicuddy had 4,043 votes, with Lambert at 2,187.
The winner of that race will go on to face state Rep. Mark Meadows, D-East Lansing, in the November general election. Meadows ran unopposed in his party.
