One Incumbent Loses And Three Win In the Ann Arbor City Council Primary Races
There were four Ann Arbor City Council incumbents on Tuesday's primary election ballot. Three of them have advanced to the November ballot.
In ward one, challenger Anne Bannister beat incumbent Jason Frenzel by 115 votes. Frenzel was appointed to the position last December to fill the seat vacated by Sabra Briere, who moved to California while still in office.
Bannister has been vocal about her opposition to the sale of the city's library lot, which has received preliminary approval to be sold to a high-rise developer.
Ann Arbor Mayor Christopher Taylorhad been vocal about his support for Frenzel Smith, and Ackerman.
The winners of the primary will be on the final ballot in the fall.
