Marijuana businesses, tight Warren mayoral race headline voting results for Nov 5 2019

There were plenty of interesting races tonight including four metro Detroit cities which voted on whether to allow businesses to sell marijuana.

Of the four, only one - Lincoln Park - appeared to have approved the measure. With eight of 12 precincts reporting, residents who said yes had 56 percent of the vote to 43 percent no.

Allen Park's marijuana establishments proposal had a 61 percent no vote to 38 percent yes.

It was defeated in Walled Lake 59 percent no to 40 percent yes, and in Keego Harbor with 65 percent no to 34 percent yes.

In other races, longtime Warren Mayor Jim Fouts appeared to have a strong challenge on his hands from councilwoman Kelly Colegio. Colegio had 51.4 percent to Fouts' 48.6 in the early going.

Fouts has served three terms as mayor, but this is the first time he has been up for re-election since a leaked recording scandal. Fouts has called the offensive recordings doctored. 

The race appears to be a standstill with more than 12,000 absentee votes that need to be counted.

"I am not pessimistic or optimistic," Fouts said. "My opponent has gotten a lot of good television coverage," Fouts said, Tuesday night. "She has put on a good performance in all the stations, I don't know. We'll see how that goes."

Colegio told FOX 2 that she felt like she won tonight, regardless of the outcome.

"I have told my supporters and I have told my family that I felt either way that I won," Colegio said. "My kids and my grandkids will know that this was the day I stood up and said it wasn't okay. And I tried to make a difference."

Around the state, incumbent Flint Mayor Karen Weaver appears to be going down to challenger and State Rep. Sheldon Neeley in a tight race. Neeley had 50,1 percent to Weaver's 48.7 percent.
