Small-“d” Democracy:


  • Ann Arbor currently elects its local officials in an extremely low-turnout primary election that does not represent the diversity of political views in the community, and that effectively disenfranchises U of M students. The problem is real, but piecemeal solutions like the recent proposal for nonpartisan elections cannot fix it. As the author of The Tyranny of the Two-Party System (2001), I have thought deeply about these issues and I care a great deal about them. I want us to:

    • Continue the grass roots momentum for nonpartisan electoral reform that was created by the victorious 2018 ballot propositions to end gerrymandering and “promise the vote” 

    • Build a resolution for municipal election reform from the grass roots, in partnership with a nonpartisan organization.
