LANSING – Two traditional political battlegrounds could become, well, less bloody, if 83 county prosecutors and 83 county sheriffs were elected without Democratic or Republican affiliations. Four lawmakers led by Rep. Joel Johnson, R-Clare, want to switch those positions from partisan to nonpartisan. The co-sponsors are Reps. Terry Brown, D-Pigeon; Kevin Daley, R-Lum; and Martin Howrylak, R-Troy. Statewide, the GOP holds a majority of both positions.
