Voters choose to recall SSC board members


STANDISH — All three Standish-Sterling school board members in the Standish-Sterling recall election received enough votes on the May 4 election to be considered for termination.

Canvassers will meet Wednesday afternoon to go over the election results, and the board members’ positions will only be terminated after all results are certified.

Brenda Golimbieski received 719 “yes” votes, which are in favor of her being recalled, and 598 votes opposed to being recalled, which are marked as "no" votes. Kim Koin received 766 “yes” votes and 552 “no” votes and Gary McFarland received 774 “yes” votes and 537 “no” votes.

The school board has to meet within 30 days to fill the positions. If they do not meet within the 30 days, Bay-Arenac ISD will fill the positions for Standish-Sterling.
