Woodmere Village Votes To Remove 3 Council Members

Voters in Woodmere Village removed the council president and two other council members in a recall election Tuesday, according to unofficial tallies posted by the Cuyahoga County Board of Elections.

Council President Jennifer Mitchell Earley lost her seat by 13 votes. Councilwomen Lisa Brockwell and Glenda Todd Miller lost by seven votes and four votes, respectively.

The only council member to withstand Tuesday’s vote was Craig D. Wade, who held onto his seat by two votes.

But those results are not final. There are eight outstanding vote-by-mail ballots and two provisional ballots yet to be reviewed and counted, according to a BOE spokesman.

Among the issues in the recall were disputes between the council and mayor over funding for a sidewalk project and maintenance of the website for the East Side suburb of about 700 residents.
