Where can you find a complete list of who is registered to run for council in the upcoming election? Any recommendations on who would be a viable candidate? Please don't tell me to do the research myself and blah blah blah...I'm trying to start a discussion on the issue. I haven't heard enough talk about the future of the council and who anyone plans to vote for, just a bunch of complaining about the current administration. Thank you!

This is all I could find:

Burgess Foster

John Bennett

And over 300 residents got petitions. Who knows how many will get the 458 required to get on the ballot.

Its still a little early, the primary isn't until August and folks are still getting their petitions signed. We will have a number of people running this cycle especially since we have several at-risk council persons that could be beaten.

When the ballot is printed, it should appear on the City Clerk's website in an "Election Newsletter." The current letter has the recent primary ballot.

The date for filing signed petitions isn't even until May. So this is jumping the gun just a bit.

My friend suggested today that we start up a new slate in Detroit called the "Courtesy Flush Slate."
