2 people are running for Lansing City Clerk: incumbent Deb Miner and opponent Chris Swope.
There are 4 in the battle for 2 at-large seats on the city council. The candidates are Kathie Dunbar, Brian Jeffries, Bob Johnson, and John Pollard.
Deb Miner tauts her experience. Swope criticizes Miner for problems in the past, and says he knows how to fix those problems.
Dunbar's message is about keeping families in Lansing. Jeffries, the incumbent, says his strength is keeping in touch with the people and their needs. Johnson talks about a multi-part approach to city government, involving neighborhoods, schools, and businesses. Pollard says city council is a place he's already focused much of his community activism, and therefore, a natural fit.
