Jorge Avellan / 89.1 WEMU

Voters in Ypsilanti are used to seeing their candidates run as Democrats.  That’s not the case this time around.  When the November 6th general election rolls around, voters in the city will find that four of the five candidate options for mayor are running as independents.  89.1 WEMU’s Jorge Avellan wanted to find out why that is.  And, along the way, the candidates helped define some of the issues that drove them to run.
