Two candidates for Benton Harbor mayoral election

The residents of Benton Harbor will have two choices for mayor this spring.

After Friday’s deadline, City Commissioner Marcus Muhammad was the only candidate who filed to run against current Mayor James Hightower.

The special election on May 6, will decide who will serve as mayor until Dec. 31 2015.

That is according to our reporting partners at The Herald Palladium.

A recall effort was organized after Hightower chose not to support putting a proposed city income tax on last November’s ballot.
