Kalamazoo will have a new mayor in November. Bobby Hopewell is not running for re-election this fall after 12 years as Kalamazoo’s mayor. Three candidates, David Anderson, David Benac and Estevan Juarez participated in a forum on Tuesday October 22nd. It was sponsored by WMUK, Western Michigan University’s Institute of Government and Politics and WeVote, a WMU group dedicated to voter registration. (Advisory: on the discussion of marijuana one of the candidates utters a profanity twice. This happens for the first time about 36:45 into the forum).
