Endorsements are a curious thing. If I were Pete, I would be working on a press release at this very moment renouncing the endorsement. It’s not that I wouldn’t want it. It’s just that an endorsement from Mr. Petykiewicz et al is almost the kiss of death here in Ypsilanti.
That not withstanding, here are some of the things they had to say about Pete:
…we believe 3rd Ward voters and the city would be best served by electing Pete Murdock.
Murdock, a retired Recycle Ann Arbor employee, has been an activist on a wide range of issues over the years. His resurgence in Ypsilanti politics was driven largely by his dissatisfaction with the way dwindling city financial resources were being used. He worked actively to defeat the income-tax proposal.
Voting for Murdock may feel a little bit like going back to the past, but his solid background in city affairs makes him the best choice for voters in Ypsilanti’s 3rd Ward.
Everyone knows that I’ve been supporting Pete, but I’ll just add to his list of endorsements. Pete has an unbelievable grasp of how local government works and how to get things done. He’s just the kind of person we need on Council to continue moving Ypsilanti forward.
