Elyria Mayoral Recall Results

Sorry for not posting these sooner, I was away for a few days.

Mayor Bill Grace kept his title and his office after a recall effort failed on December 22nd.

58% of voters chose to keep the mayor while 42% voted to recall him.

This came after a spirited campaign by opponents of Grace who was accused of making poor financial decisions and making the economic hardship worse by his choices.  Turnout was miniscule. With Christmas looming, only 7,387 voters participated even as over 22,000 voted in last November’s presidential election.
