Vincent Delgado was appointed to the Lansing city council in February to fill the remaining term vacated by Derrick Quinney, who left the post after his selection as Ingham County Register of Deeds. Delgado has decided not to run for re-election in the August 4 primary. His term will end January 1.

Delgado’s day job is as Assistant  Dean for Civic Engagement at Michigan State University. He’s also the co-founder of the Refugee Development Center in Lansing.

Current State talks with Vincent Delgado about why, after just two months on the council, he’s decided not to seek election.
