2nd Ward candidates for Ann Arbor City Council to appear at Wednesday night forum
Residents in Ann Arbor's 2nd Ward will get a chance Wednesday night to hear from two candidates competing for the Ann Arbor City Council.
The forum is being hosted by the Orchard Hills-Maplewood Homeowners Association, which bills the event as a chance to meet the candidates and learn more about where they stand on various issues.
With the Nov. 8 general election now two weeks away, the 2nd Ward race is being closely watched as Rapundalo, a former Republican, goes up against a formidable opponent in Lumm, a former Republican council member from the '90s.
AnnArbor.com offered a look earlier this week at just how close the race might be. Rapundalo has never won a general election with more than 52 percent of the vote.
