Sat, Feb 18, 2017 - 4:00pm to 6:00pm

City:

I'm hosting a Fireside Chat to talk about running for office. While I've only been Mayor of Ypsilanti for just over 2 years, and am not someone with a background in politics or elections, I'll share my thoughts and experience about the importance of people stepping up to run for office at all levels... AND, the importance of people stepping up to both support candidates in running, and support people once they're in office. Then I'll open up Q&A and a dialogue about it all.
