The race for Flint mayor begins
Tuesday is the deadline for anyone who wants to be the mayor of Flint to get their nominating petition filed with the city clerk. More than 2 dozen people have expressed an interest in being Flint’s next mayor, including the man who currently holds the office.
Dayne Walling plans to turn in his nominating petitions before Tuesday’s deadline. He’s been mayor since a special election a few years ago.
“I’ve been in the position for less than 2 years at this point. A lot of the work we’ve had to do has been to clean up the old messes.”
In the August primary, Walling will face at least two candidates (Darryl Buchanan and Eric Mays) he defeated in the 2009 special election and another candidate (David Davenport) who tried unsuccessfully to recall Walling from office last year.
