Some people who live in East Lansing think that the city needs its own attorney.
They turned in signatures today to put the idea before voters in November. Right now, East Lansing has a contract with a private law firm. This new campaign says that having a city attorney will save money and give citizens more say in who their leaders are.
Jeffery Hank co-chaired the petition campaign. He's also a Democrat running for Mike Rogers' seat in Congress.
