Marquette County Sheriff Mike Lovelace.
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Marquette County Sheriff Mike Lovelace has announced a change in his plans to retire and says he will not be stepping down next month.
In a message to County officials, Lovelace said he has decided to not retire early and will finish out his term, which is scheduled to end in 2016.
Lovelace said he retracted his earlier announcement due to confusion over the process of selecting his interim replacement.
Lovelace was recommending Undersheriff Jack Schneider for the post, but a three-member panel, made up of Probate Judge Cheryl Hill, County Prosecuting Attorney Matt Wiese and County Clerk Peter Dishnow, was taking applications from any and all interested candidates.
Lovelace has served as Sheriff for the past 17 years.
