Goodrich Mayor Removed from Office, LIVINGSTON, March 27, 2017 - In a district court room in Livingston this morning (03/27/17), District Judge David Wilson ruled to remove Goodrich Mayor, Jeremy Harper from office. When Harper ran for mayor of Goodrich, he left off information on his paperwork about being a two time convicted felon. A felony conviction would disqualify and person from running for mayor. In December of 2016, a Polk County Grand Jury indicted Harper for stealing electricity from Goodrich City Hall. Harper was working on his house across street from city hall and was using an extension cord when the electricity theft occurred. This morning's ruling to remove Harper from office is concurrent with the crime of falsifying government documents.
