Incumbent Ann Arbor City Council member Stephen Kunselman has defeated a challenge from a former campaign volunteer. Kunselman received 70 percent of the vote yesterday, with Sam DeVarti of the Mixed Use Party claiming 28 percent.
Kunselman says the results of all of the council races show voters still want a greater priority placed on core services. He says council will continue to focus on making stronger neighborhoods. Kunselman says it will be nice to have more allies on council as he looks to run for mayor next year.
The League of Women Voters of the Ann Arbor Area hosted candidate forums for those running in contested races for Ann Arbor City Council. In the 3rd Ward, Stephen Kunselman is facing a challenge from someone who helped get him elected four years ago.
As WEMU's Andrew Cluley reports, Sam Devarti is challenging the Incumbent for the seat, but the forum revealed that the candidates are in agreement on many of the issues.
