Jack Eaton has defeated long-time Ann Arbor City Council member Marcia Higgins in the city's Fourth Ward Democratic Primary.  Eaton claimed nearly 65 percent of the vote.

Eaton says his campaign was focused on having the city provide basic services like police and fire.  He says a narrow loss in the primary last year helped energize his campaign this year and increased his name recognition.

Nobody has filed to run against Eaton in the November general election.
