Brownstown election to feature one town council race



The Nov. 5 municipal election for the five-member Brownstown Town Council features just a single contested seat.

That race features Republican Gregory Goshorn looking to retain his Ward 1 seat on the council and Democrat Pamela Fleetwood, who is a political newcomer.

Incumbent Republicans Sharon Koch (Ward 2) and Gary Drake (Ward 3), Republican Timothy Robinson (Ward 5) and incumbent Democrat Mark Reynolds (Ward 4) are running unopposed.

During a town convention in August, conducted by the Jackson County Republican Party in the courthouse lobby, Goshorn defeated Terry Fordice 80-20.

Robinson defeated Colby Carter 89-4 during that same convention for Ward 5. Republican Sally Lawson, who had represented Ward 5, chose not to seek re-election. She was the council president until recently resigning because she moved out of the ward.

Goshorn was appointed to the Ward 1 position three years ago.

“Brownstown is a great community to raise a family. This is why my wife, Lindsey McKain Goshorn, and I chose to raise our three children here,” Goshorn said.

“Brownstown has been home for the past decade, and since arriving, I have felt the desire to become more active in the community,” he said. “For the past three years, it has been my pleasure to serve on the council as an appointed member. A lot of progress has been made during this time, and I would like to continue our work to ensure Brownstown is a safe and prosperous community.”

Fleetwood is running for the position for the first time after moving back to the area.

“I moved back to Brownstown two years ago, and I am so happy to be back,” Fleetwood said. “I am excited to make a difference in Brownstown with a focus on safety, wellness, growth and building community.”
