Mike Duggan is hoping Detroit voters write in his name on the August 6th ballot. Now his campaign is releasing a new jingle to help voters navigate the process.
The new jingle is one of dozens that was submitted to Duggan's campaign by supporters. Duggan's camp says the jingles weren't solicited, but that supporters just want to make sure voters spell Mike Duggan's name correctly on their ballots next week. "Our thanks to the many Detroiters who have offered their ideas, creative energy to help Mike Duggan in his historic write-in campaign," said Campaign Communications Director John Roach.
Voters will have to spell Duggan's name correctly, and remember to fill in the bubble in order for the vote to actually count for the former DMC president and CEO.
Duggan was forced to run as a write-in candidate for Detroit mayor, after a lawsuit successfully challenged his petition filing. The court found that Duggan turned in his signatures too early to fully comply with residency rules. However, the state elections director said the City Charter only requires that write-in candidates file by the deadline of July 26. Duggan filed on July 1.
