Lansing's Second Ward incumbent Houghton to face challenger in general election

Lansing City Council

Lansing residents go to the polls next Tuesday to vote in their next primary election.  Four incumbents on the city council are facing challengers, as well as Mayor Virg Bernero.  In these final days leading up to the Lansing primary, Current State takes a look at the key races from the voters’ perspective.
Incumbent Tina Houghtonholds Lansing’s Second Ward city council seat and is challenged by Charles Hoffmeyer.  However, this race actually won't appear on the ballot; instead, both candidates will advance to the general election in November.  

The Forest View Neighborhood Association's president Jan Kolp and vice president Brett Stockhill discuss the needs in the Second Ward.
