Muskegon, Kent sheriffs face primary challengers
Three Republican candidates challenge longtime Kent County Sheriff Lawrence Stelma in Tuesday’s primary election.
Challengers include Timothy Lewis, a sheriff’s deputy and former county law enforcement union president.
Lewis filed to run for sheriff in 2012 but withdrew after Stelma decided to seek another term.
Three Democrat candidates are also on the Tuesday ballot against current Muskegon County Sheriff Dean Roesler.
The sheriff seat has two Republican primary challengers.
