LUDINGTON — Former Mason County Undersheriff Jody Hartley has defeated incumbent Chuck Lange, 622-410, in the Republican nomination for the Mason County Commission Third District seat, which represents Hamlin and Grant townships. There were no Democrat party candidates for the seat. Unless there is a write-in candidate in the November General Election, Hartley will be unopposed.

Hartley, 61, served 32 years at the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, including serving 5 1/2 years as undersheriff in the current administration with Sheriff Kim Cole. He and his wife, Linda, live in Hamlin Township.
