Fourth ward incumbent Jessica Yorko faces off next Tuesday against three challengers: Chong-Anna Canfora, of the liberal political advocacy group Progress Michigan, attorney Bert Carrier Jr. and Larry Hutchinson, a stay-at-home father.  The top two vote-getters will face off in November’s general election.    

Rina Risper, president of the Walnut Neighborhood Association, and Paul Johns, president of the Moores Park Neighborhood Association, discuss the needs in the Fourth Ward and the primary candidates.
