Traverse City brethren....question from an out of stater...
...
Are Traverse City Commissioners elected non-partisanly or does party politics enter?
Wondering about Ricky Csapo, the commissioner who had to resign after he was convicted of domestic assault...

....trying to keep up with things in the T.C. Record Eagle but....

T.C. ... what a fine city.

1. I see no mention of party politics
I imagine he was elected in a non-partisan manner.

Most mayors and commissioners in Michigan are elected non-patrisan. Even the mayor of Detroit, who professes to be a strrong Democrat (which I doubt - he spoke at a county GOP fundraiser) was elected on a nonpartisan basis.

2. Wayne County politics are a bipartisan cesspool of corruption
Kilpatrick, the late McNamara, Engler, and so on. Whether it's the Metro Airport contracts, or the investigation into the alleged "stripper party" at the mayor's mansion, it's all one big mess. I think that's typical of county and city-level politics (I live in Warren, same kind of bi-partisan mess at times, as we have dems on city council and a repub mayor, and the fireman's pension fund just sort of vanished).
