Michigan voters by supporting a "tweaking" of
Proposal A to allow for increases in property
taxes. That 1994 ballot proposal froze property
taxes and made the sales tax the primary source
of education funding. Granholm officials deny
a tax hike would be in the making should she
"It's very important to students who are com-
ing out of college looking to buy their first
homes" that property taxes are not raised, said
Sage Eastman, Posthumus' spokesman.
Granholm "has rolled out new policy after new
policy without a way to pay for it."
Both campaigns expect several stops in Ann
Arbor and Washtenaw County before the Nov.
5 general election.
Two seats on the University Board of
Regents now held by Republicans will also be
up for grabs as Democrats hope to boost their
5-3 majority. Regent Andrea Fischer Newman
(R-Ann Arbor) is seeking reelection, while
Regent Daniel Horning (R-Grand Haven) is
stepping down as state Rep. Andrew Richner of
Grosse Pointe Park will be carrying the GOP
banner in his place. They will face Democrats
Greg Stephens of Saline, a United Auto Work-
ers official, and Ismail Ahmed of Dearborn, an
Arab-American community activist. Similar
elections will be held for the governing boards
of Michigan State University, Wayne State Uni-
versity and the Michigan Department of Educa-
tion, with the top two vote-getters securing
seats for an eight year term.
"Given what we got in August, I expect a
good turnout in November, with the race for
governor and the fact that there's no incumbent,"
saidYvonne Carl, Ann Arbor interim city clerk.
In another important race, state Rep. Andrew
"Rocky" Raczkowski (R-Farmington Hills) is
hoping to end Detroit Democrat Carl Levin's
24-year career in the U.S. Senate in a race that
is focusing on military policy in its preliminary
stages as Raczkowski is a captain in the Army
Reserves and Levin chairs the Senate Armed
In the race to succeed term-limited Secretary
of State Candice Miller, Detroit election law
attorney Melvin "Butch" Hollowell, who led
then-Vice President Al Gore's recount effort in
Florida during the 2000 presidential election,
will be the Democratic candidate squaring off
against former Kent County Clerk Terri Land
of Byron Center.
Republicans will also be seeking to break the
near half-century Democratic hold on the attor-
ney general's office. Livonia Republican
Michael Cox, head of the homicide division in
the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office will
square off against state Sen. Gary Peters (D-
In local races, first-term incumbent John
Hieftje is the Democratic candidate in the bien-
nial Ann Arbor mayoral election. He will be
squaring off against Republican City Council-
woman Marcia Higgins.
One City Council seat in each of the city's
five wards will also be up for grabs. Four of the
five races are contested, and former Council-
woman Joan Lowenstein seeks a Comeback in
the 2nd Ward after being defeated in 2001.
With the mayor's vote, Democrats currently
hold an 8-3 majority on the council.
State Rep. Gene DeRossett (R-Manchester
Twp.) will be in for a tough fight after his
hometown was put in a more Democratic dis-
trict including the northern parts of Ann
Arbor after legislative redistricting. He will
face Washtenaw County Road Commissioner
Pam Byrnes, an attorney and Chelsea resi-
dent, in one of the more competitive state
House races this fall in the 52nd District.
Republicans currently have a 58-52 majority
in the House. In the 53rd District House race
- based in Ann Arbor - incumbent Democ-
rat Chris Kolb faces Republican John Milroy,
both of Ann Arbor.
For the 18th District state Senate race, for-
mer state Rep. Liz Brater (D-Ann Arbor) will
square off against Republican Gordon Darr of
Dexter. The Senate is currently made up of 23
Republicans and 15 Democrats.
Voters will also have to vote on several
proposed amendments to the Michigan Con-
stitution as well as a parks millage renewal
for the city.
Also on the ballot this fall: U.S. Rep. John
Dingell of Dearborn will be carrying the
Democratic banner in the heavily-Democratic
15th Congressional District. After defeating
fellow Rep. Lynn Rivers of Ann Arbor in a
bruising Democratic primary, Dingell faces
Dearborn Republican Martin Kaltenbach. Sev-
eral seats on the Washtenaw County Commis-
sion will also be up for grabs and state
Supreme Court Justices Elizabeth Weaver and
Robert Young Jr., Republicans are also up for
