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.
So let me take this opportunity to talk a bit about Brian Robb. I have served with Brian on City Council for the last six years. When I was elected in 2008, I didn’t know Brian very well. I soon found him to be the most knowledgeable, detail orientated and engaged of any of the council members. His concern for Ypsilanti ’s future was second to none. He knew the tough reality we were in. He understood the need to reverse some of financial decisions of the past in order, get our fiscal house in order while still maintaining the services to our community. That has not been an easy. Hard decisions had to be made and Brian made them.
A lengthy list of accomplishments can be made, but suffice it to say that by any measurement, the City of Ypsilanti is in a better place than it was six years ago and Brian is a major reason for that reversible of fortunes.
Brian may not seem warm and cuddly, but he is always approachable and responds to constituent concerns. He and I have an excellent working relationship, which provides for an effective partnership to represent the Third Ward. Let’s keep it by
