CITY ELECTIONS
LSA alum
makes bid
for mayor
Recent graduate seeks
Ann Arbor's highest
public office
By SUZANNE JACOBS
Daily StaffReporter
Less than one month after U.S.
President Barack Obama stressed civil
service in his commencement address,
one University graduate is wasting no
time putting his political science edu-
cation to the test by running for public
office.
Abeut halfway through his senior
year at the University, William Btustic
Jr. started thinking about running for
mayor of Ann Arbor. At 22, the politi-
cal science and Afroamerican and
African Studies major who graduated
on May 1 said he just wants to listen to

If I can't, I'm going to figure out away
to help you out. That's what I want to

Officials criticized for
handling of case with
former researcher
Andrei Borisov
By KYLE SWANSON
Daily News Editor
Two investigatory committees
have formally endorsed reports
that call out University adminis-
trators for violating the freedoms-
and rights of one former University
professor, sources tell The Michi-
gan Daily.
The reports detail a series
of incidents surrounding Andrei

Borisov, who used to work at the
University as a research faculty
member. One report was adopted
by the Faculty Hearing Commit-
tee of the Senate
Advisory Com-
mittee on Uni-
versity Affairs
and another was
adopted by both
the Executive
Committee and
Committee on KYLE SWANSON

of the Univer- Aminsfrofion

the American Association of Uni-

The local Executive Commit-

tee of the University's chapter of
AAUP endorsed its report earlier
this month following the chapter's
Committee on Academic Freedom
and Tenure's - known as Com-
mittee A - formal adoption of a
21-page report late last month.
SACUA's Faculty Hearing
Committee formalized its own
55-page report last month, calling
out University officials for violat-
ing Borisov's rights and academic
freedom. The report also examines
steps taken by University officials
in handling Borisov's departure
from the University.
