Ten Candidates, One Contest

 

continued

Kunselman is used to having challengers: the U-M energy management liaison has faced eight in seven years, more than any other councilmember. And he bluntly dismisses the Mixed Use Party's platform as "misguided. I have a master's in urban planning, and I can tell you their plan doesn't meet all the criteria for what they want to accomplish: more student housing and loud parties. It's going backwards in history to regulate by simplifying, and it would have serious negative consequences because people would take advantage."

The fifty-year-old has kinder words for his young opponent. "I know Sam, and I'm great friends with him and his family. I appreciate Sam running, and I hope after this he will run again as a Democrat."

DeVarti could get that opportunity: Kunselman says he plans to run for mayor next year--and if he wins, his council seat will come open again.

The first time Sabra Briere ran for council in 2007, the Ward One incumbent recalls, she had two opponents but "no agenda. And I don't have an agenda now. I'm simply working to be the kind of representative I want: I listen to all sides and make up my own mind."
