The 2024 Omena Mayor Race is ON!

2024 Omena Mayoral Candidates

The sixth Omena Mayoral Election is now underway, a uniquely Leelanau tradition to elect a local pet as mayor that began in 2009. This is the 6th election to be held, and voting for the 18 candidates runs through Thursday, July 18 at 5 pm. Candidates are posted on the Tally Board outside the Omena Historical Museum in Omena on the OHS website.

Voting is open to everyone – far away friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers- all can vote for as many candidates as they like, as many votes as they want – the cost is only a dollar a vote! Funds raised will be used for the Putnam-Cloud Tower House Museum preservation. This is the 20th anniversary of moving the building from the Villa Marquette, which means that the roof and HVAC are 20 years old, and they are planning ahead.

On Saturday, July 20, 2024 at 1:30 pm, all mayoral candidates, family, friends & the community are invited to the announcement and inauguration of the winner at an ice cream social in the Omena Presbyterian Church parking area.

Head over to the Omena Historical Museum website to see & vote for the candidates!
