Need advice on voting in Ann Arbor
I have my absentee ballot. Any information on these races would be appreciated...

Representative In State Legislature 53rd District
Leigh Greden vs. Rebekah Warren

County Commissioner 10th District
Conan Smith vs. Scott Snuverink

Mayor
John Hiefje vs. Wendy Ann Woods (never had a problem with Heiftke, don't know anything about Woods)

Councilmember Ward 5
Sonia Schmerl vs. Chris Easthope vs. Richard J Ankil (Easthope was consistently unhelpful the few times I have dealt with him, but I don't know anything about the others)

Precinct Delegate
Patrick Hunt vs. John Shutko

1. Question...
What exactly is a precinct delegate and what do they do?

Sorry I can't be helpful with your ballot because I live in Ypsilanti.

5. Precinct delegate links:

http://www.michigan.gov/documents/Issue_29_147846_7.pdf

Note that many precincts have more than one delegate. (My precinct in Trenton is allocated seven delegates this time around -- only three people filed. It should be an easy election.)

2. My recommendations:
Greden, Heiftje, and Easthope. I don't know the other two.

I think Greden will be able to work more cooperatively in Lansing than Warren although both are good. Heiftje is doing a good job and should be given the opportunity to continue. To tell you the truth, I don't know why Wendy Woods is even running. I'm sorry you had problems with Easthope; that sounds very uncharacteristic of him. I know Chris personally and I know how hard he works for the city and for his constituents.

3. I would vote for....
Leigh Greden
Chris Easthope
John Hiefje and
Scott Snuverink

I too have no idea who the Precinct Delegates are, so I'll refrain from commenting on them.

I personally know Snuverink and Easthope, Greden and Hiefje have done well for the City so far, so I will throw my hat in for them as well.

Good luck with your decisions,

Ann Arbor
