On Wednesday night, six out of the nine candidates met voters at Foster Community Center. They are Democratic candidates Anne Clayton, Dale Copedge, Ted O’Dell, Griffin Rivers, A’Lynne Robinson and Andy Schor.
“I’m going to get in there on day one and be able to get things done for Lansing,” said Schor.
“My daughter is here and one of the reasons I ran is because I want her to see very strong women who has the ability to serve and lead and have a voice,” said Lansing City Councilmember A’Lynne Robinson.
With more competition, each candidate may just need to campaign harder to get the votes.
Griffin Rivers says he plans to meet with people by knocking on doors and says he feels confident he can do the job.
“I know how to deal with budgets, I know what to do with the legislature and it’s all about talking and having a relationship with each other.”
Republican candidates Timothy Moede and Michael Wing are also running. The 68th district seat is traditionally held by a Democrat.
