Washtenaw County Commissioner Conan Smith lost his 9th District primary race on Tuesday.  While disappointed, he remains proud of his long tenure in public service and is encouraged by the leadership to be offered by the victor in the race, Katie Scott.  Smith took time Wednesday morning to reflect and look ahead in a conversation with WEMU's David Fair.

After a sometimes contentious primary, Christopher Taylor knows he has enough support to continue as Mayor.  But, he will also have to work with the member of city council he defeated for two more years as well as a host of new faces, amidst incumbent losses on Tuesday.  Mayor Taylor discussed the challenges and opportunities for moving his agenda forward with WEMU's David Fair.
