“These are pivotal times in Detroit and residents need accurate and complete information about the candidates' positions on key issues - in their own words, without bias or favoritism,” said Susan Smith, President of the League of Women Voters of Michigan. “With a large field of mayoral candidates and City Council members being elected by district for the first time, this could be a potentially confusing election. We know voters in Detroit want to be informed, motivated and empowered to vote in the upcoming primary and general elections,” she added.
