LANSING NEWS BULLETIN:
Is the city of Lansing getting tired of incumbent Mayor Virg Bernero? He's been mayor for a decade and has been known as America's angriest mayor. There's increasing noise coming from voters about his combative attitude towards them and issues they're concerned about.
Two items which hint at voter displeasure:
- Lansing State Journal reports a results from a new poll which shows that local State Rep. Andy Schor could beat Bernero by more than 17 percent.
- Speak Up Lansing, a new group aimed at mobilizing local citizens for political action, has opened a new website aimed at signing-up recruits for a revolution.
What does all this mean? Is this evidence that voters are seriously unhappy with the Bernero administration?
