The primary election Tuesday could make a big difference in Ann Arbor's skyline — as well as its future.
The election pits two kinds of Democrats against each other: those who want to slow down the city's growth, especially when it comes to new high-rise development, and those who say continued growth is necessary.
Tuesday’s primary election could set the stage for a revamped Flint city council: 6 of the 9 council members are facing multiple challengers. The other three will have a challenger in November’s general election.
The Flint city council has struggled with Mayor Karen Weaver and itself in recent years, as the city has slowly moved out from under state oversight. A panel appointed by the state still has final say on big issues facing the city.
