Duggan endorses Santana for state house

Mayor Mike Duggan endorsed incumbent State Representative Harvey Santana in his final re-election bid for the 9th District of Michigan House of Representatives. The primary election for this race is this coming Tuesday. Santana is opposed by newcomer Hussein Barry who is apparently basing his entire campaign on attacking without mentioning what he would do differently.

During his tenure this far, Santana has worked to address issues such as abandoned homes, squatters, and blight. He was also pivotal in getting a $330,000 allocation for Brennan Pools in Rouge Park as well as restoring funding for Detroit's Hutzel Women's Hospital.

If re-elected, this will be Santana's third term in the Michigan House of Representatives. He will not be eligible for forth term in that office due to term limits.
