Two names to appear on Benton Harbor mayor special election


The candidates for the special election for Benton Harbor's Mayor are set.  Incumbent James Hightower and City Commissioner Marcus Muhammad will appear on the ballot. 

Both had already announced that they were running in the past two weeks, but Friday was the deadline to officially file as a candidate.

The election was scheduled after a petition was signed by 400 people and submitted to the clerks office to force Mayor Hightower out of office.

The election will be held on May 6.
