Genson to leave seat; Alway submits petition

SCOTTVILLE — With the primaries now over, districts and municipalities across the state are gearing up for the general election in November, and Scottville is no exception.

Changes are coming to the Scottville City Commission despite a lack of contested races, with five terms expiring, four commissioners seeking re-election, one leaving the commission in November and one first-time candidate.

Second Ward Commissioners Ann Genson and Marcy Spencer, First Ward Commissioner Leon Begue and Commissioner-at-Large Sally Cole, as well as Commissioner-at-Large and Mayor Bruce Krieger, all face expiring terms on the commission, and all but one have submitted nominating petitions to continue serving on the commission.

Only Genson has chosen not to retain her seat, to which she was appointed following Tom Donald’s December 2017 resignation, according to City Clerk Deborah Howe.

Krieger, who was originally appointed to an at-large seat in 2016, submitted a petition seeking the two-year Second Ward seat Genson will be leaving in November, Howe said, and one a new candidate — Rob Alway, chair of the city planning commission — is seeking the at-large seat currently occupied by Krieger.
