A City Clerk employee hands out election results from Tuesday's election.

By Charles Sercombe
City Councilmember Cathie Gordon was Tuesday’s top vote-getter in the council race.

The other two top vote-getters were Robert Zwolak and Anam Miah. All three will go on to serve a four-year term starting this January. Zwolak is a former councilmember. Miah has not held office before. This was his second attempt to win a seat on council.

In the race for two School Board seats, Magdalena Srodek, who has never run for office in Hamtramck, came out on top with another newcomer Nasr Saleh Hussain in second place.

Here are the election results for the City Council race:

Cathie Gordon, 844
Robert Zwolak, 811
Anam Miah, 733
Abdul Algazali, 662
Dilshad Chowdhury, 611
Steve Shaya, 200

In the School Board election, the results are as follows:

Magdalena Srodek, 597
Nasr Hussain, 570
Ripon Lasker, 523
Alan Shulgon, 512
Dennis Lukas, 378
Darla Swint, 229
Eric Burkman, 170

The total number of votes cast was 1,835 – almost 400 more than the August Primary Election.

This was one of the warmest November election dates. Temperatures were around 70 degrees with plenty of sun.

    Here’s to hoping that Hamtramck continues to move in a positive direction, ready to move forward with the help of cultural collaboration.
