Ottawa County

GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WOOD) — City council member Bob Monetza won the mayoral race in Grand Haven Tuesday.

Monetza beat opponent Josh Brugger, also a city council member, by only about 150 votes.

“I’m humbled and very appreciative to the voters who expressed confidence in me,” Monetza stated Tuesday night. “Brugger and myself, we both ran very positive campaigns, very respectful. I’m here to serve the people of this city and we have a lot of work to do.”

He said the biggest win of the day was the passage of a millage to fund infrastructure upgrades in Grand Haven.
