FLINT, Mich. (AP) - The nine members of a commission that will review Flint’s city charter have been chosen by voters.

Unofficial results from Tuesday’s election show Democrat John Cherry got the most votes. He was Michigan’s lieutenant governor under Gov. Jennifer Granholm.

The results say other members will be Brian Larkin, Cleora Magee, Victoria McKenze, Charles Metcalfe, Heidi Phaneuf, Jim Richardson, Marsha Wesley, and Barry Williams.

Flint residents voted in November for the first review of the charter in 40 years. The election to choose charter review commission members was expected in February, but was pushed back by state-appointed emergency manager Darnell Earley.

The charter sets out the city government’s structure, including the size and makeup of the City Council. Voters would have the final say on changes.
