EVERETT TOWNSHIP, MICH. - There will be a two-day trial next month to determine the residency of a township clerk in Newaygo County.
Everett Township clerk Roshelle Wright is charged with a felony under Michigan election law. The "false swearing" charge alleges she used a false address on her affidavit of identity to meet township residency requirements.
The issue was brought to the attention of Michigan State Police by current Wright Township trustee Curtis Chaffee.
His wife, Pamela, is running against Wright for the position of township clerk.
Wright told WZZM she never moved out of the township and still lives there now.
The trial is scheduled for Nov. 1-2.
