Village election
case submitted

Observer Staff Writer
      The case involving Village Trustee Christine Malzahn and her primary residency is currently in the hands of county officials.
       Romeo Police Chief Greg Paduch said his department submitted its evidence to the Macomb County Prosecutor's Office about two weeks ago regarding allegations that Malzahn incorrectly filed when running for village trustee.
       Paduch said as of Dec. 10 the prosecutor's office has not responded.
       Village officials claim when filing for the opening, Malzahn provided a primary address in the village but didn't live at the residence at the time of the filing.
       Bruce and Washington township officials that handled the November election claimed Malzahn was in compliance with state laws. Malzahn's attorney has said when Malzahn filed she both lived and worked in Romeo.
       Michigan's Election Law 168.11 defines a residence as "a place at which a person habitually sleeps, keeps his or her personal effects, and has a regular place of lodging."
       The law further states if a person has more than one residence, the one where they spend "the greater part of the time" should be their official residence.
