It's another two year term representing the 1st Ward on Ann Arbor City Council   for Sabra Briere. 

Sabra Briere is headed for another term on Ann Arbor City Council. The 1st Ward  Incumbent received 690 votes to Challenger Will Leaf’s 287. Briere says that most likely means her constituents like the job she is doing. She was disappointed at low voter turnout. Overall, turnout in the citys’ four wards totaled just under 10-and-a-half percent.  Briere is unopposed in the November General Election and will serve another two-year term on city council.
