Golden Limousine C-E-O Sean Duval attended the event and says it was great to hear from both communities at the same time.  Duval also liked the location of the event, a hotel on Carpenter Road the symbolic dividing line between the 2 cities.

Duval says he's not a resident of either community but still wants to know more about who will be replacing John Hieftje and Paul Schreiber.   

The August Primary in Ann Arbor includes City Council members Sabra Briere, Sally Hart Petersen, Stephen Kunselman, and Christopher Taylor.  Tyrone Bridges, Amanda Edmonds, and Pete Murdock are on Ypsilanti's primary ballot.
