Grosse Pointe Park: Incumbent Mayor Michelle Hodges faces a challenge from City Councilwoman Christine Gallagher. Hodges was elected to the council in 2019 and elected mayor in 2021. She is the founding CEO of the Belle Isle Conservancy, having run that nonprofit since 2012. She starts a new job on Nov. 13, becoming CEO of Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County. Gallagher is a telecommunications solution consultant. She has served on the city council since 2021. A full-time city manager oversees operations while the part-time mayor chairs a seven-seat city council. Six candidates are vying for three council seats. One candidate is an appointed incumbent, so Tuesday’s election will bring at least two newcomers to the council.
