Cronin ran for re-election to the 48th Circuit Court.
General: He was unopposed in the general election on November 4, 2014.[3]


In Cronin's election to the 48th Circuit Court, a recount was ordered due to the very narrow margin reflected in the first count results. However, over half of the ballot boxes were improperly sealed and could not be recounted. The result of the election ended with Baillargeon gaining 13 votes and Cronin adding 12. Cronin won with 50.02% of the vote, defeating Baillargeon who received only 49.43% of the vote.[4]

Notable cases

Saugatuck clerks case

Cronin presided over a case involving two clerks, Wright and Babinski, who were accused of breaking the original ballot box seals in a vote deciding whether to raise taxes in order to pay legal fees in an ongoing case. Cronin sided in favor of the clerks and the township.[5]
