DO YOU SUPPORT THE RIGHT OF PEOPLE OF THE SAME SEX TO GET LEGALLY MARRIED IN MICHIGAN?
Yes, I support same-sex marriage.
The freedom to marry is a pretty basic right. It’s amazing that we are still having this debate.
DO YOU SUPPORT AMENDING THE MICHIGAN STATE CONSTITUTION TO LIFE THE 2004 BAN ON SAME-SEX MARRIAGE?
Yes, I support overturning the ban.
This constitutional amendment reflects poorly on the State of Michigan and hinders our ability to attract and retain talent and business.
WHAT IN YOUR EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE MAKE YOU THE BEST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE FOR THIS POSITION?
Having had the honor to serve on City Council for the last eight years, I am the only candidate with an in-depth understanding of the issues facing our community. I am the only candidate who has led the creation of policy that positively improves our parks and playgrounds, reconstructs roads, and improves the financial outlook of the City. My experience in dealing with multi-million dollar budgets, my extensive experience with City personnel and functions, my background in creative problem solving, and my proven track records in dealing with constituent concerns all make me the most qualified candidate to represent the 3rd Ward in Ypsilanti.
I first encountered Robb when I served on Ypsilanti’s Blue Ribbon Commission for City Finances. With his grasp of numbers and patient intelligence, he explained to me how the income tax proposed at the time would disadvantage low income citizen renters. He was right. He has continued to be right on a number of issues concerning the financing of our city, whether it be with respect to transit, pensions, Water Street, and other matters of general fiscal responsibility. He has been especially courageous in expressing his vision of a diverse Ypsilanti, not modeling the city as a wannabe less than diverse Ann Arbor.
