City Commission Update

More candidates have announced their intentions regarding the Kalamazoo City Commission.

Kalamazoo mayor to seek re-election

Mayor Bobby Hopewell and Commissioner Barb Miller will seek reelection. Sean McCann has previously announced that he will not seek reelection and will instead pursue the 60th state house seat. That leaves longtime commissioners Hannah McKinney and Don Cooney, plus David Anderson and legally troubled Stephanie Moore yet to announce their intentions.

Challengers so far include Terry Krueske, who heads the city Planning Commission and has been involved with many other boards. Asha Khazad appears to be a much less credible candidate.

There is also Kai Phillips, a business-owner who opposes the 'gay rights' ordinance passed by the commission.

Candidates have until October 2 to announce for election.
