Candidates School Choice Not an Issue in Mayor's Race

In 2003 Lansing voters were hit by Mayor Tony Benavides' campaign ads saying State Senator Virg Bernero's daughters did not attend Lansing schools. This year, however, both candidates say it's not an issue this time around.

In 2003 Bernero's children attended Holt and East Lansing Schools.

This year both attend East Lansing.

Bernero says the individual attacks about schools of choice shouldn't be part of this campaign or in 2003.

Benavides agrees but says it's unnecessary because people know the issue this time around.
