WARREN, Mich. – Warren Mayor Jim Fouts faced a stronger challenge Tuesday in the general election, but ultimately he held on to his position as Warren’s top official.
Fouts will now enter a 4th term as Warren mayor. He won 57 percent of the vote this time, defeating City Council member Kelly Colegio.
Fouts, who has been mayor since 2007, has been the subject of multiple controversies, primarily surrounding taped recordings. Most recently, a recording alleged Warren Mayor Fouts threatened to shoot his former chief of staff. Fouts denied that the tape was real.
Colegio had been running on a platform to end “shenanigans” in city government.
Warren voters also cast votes for city clerk, treasurer and six City Council seats -- here are the full Warren election results for Nov. 5, 2019:
