  •  Raquel Castaneda-Lopez - Detroit (0+ / 0-)

    Raquel Castaneda-Lopez has just become the first hispanic American on the Detroit City Council.  She's out of District 6.  Lots of "first", tonight.  Gabe Leland wins in District 7 by less than a hundred votes to be the first white person on council (and Jewish) since Sheila Cockrel stepped down a few years back.

    Karen Majewski holds on as mayor of Hamtramck after a vigorous challenge.  This is also another office you'll see going to Hamtramck's immigrant population in the next go around.

    Wait, am I reading this right?  Is there only one white guy on Dearborn's council, now?  Wow.  I eamn, Dearborn has a significant Arab population (40%),  but they've really become politically active, lately, in a much bigger way than ebfore.
