Good News from Local Democratic Presidential Caucus

It was no surprise that the folks who attended the Democratic Presidential Caucus in Dexter yesterday voted unanimously for Barack Obama.  But that's not the good news I'm talking about.

The best news is related to candidates for office closer to home.

  • 7th Congressional District - Yes, there is a real, serious Democrat running to unseat Tim Walberg: Ruben Marquez of Jackson just announced his intentions.
  • 52nd State House District - Gretchen Driskell, 7 term mayor of Saline is running for State Representative against the "really nice guy" who has let us all down with his voting record and refuses to discuss the issues.
  • Washtenaw County Commission 1st District - Kent Martinez-Kratz, Chelsea City Council member since 2005
