BENTON HARBOR Voters around the country will be marking their ballots on Tuesday, voting for those who will take office in 2014. But there's one name on the ballot in Michiana, who isn't actually an option for election.
WSJM reports that Benton Harbor City Commissioner Dennis Knowles resigned Monday night, so even though his name is still on Tuesday’s ballot, he is not seeking re-election.
His opponent, Ruthie McCoy Haralson, doesn't necessarily win by default. If voters chose Knowles at the polls, it will be up to Emergency Manager Tony Saunders to appoint a replacement.
