Young Democrats across state being sworn into municipal offices


Dozens of Democrats under the age of 35 are being sworn-in to municipal offices all over Michigan during the next several weeks, helping to add to an already strong Democratic farm team in Michigan.

Some of the winners include: Zack Stanton, New Baltimore City Council; Kyle DuBuc, Royal Oak City Commission; Mike Fournier, Royal Oak City Commission; Annie Boensch, Saginaw City Commission; Derek Dobies, Jackson City Council; Jeremy Moss, Southfield City Council; Rachel Lewis, Lansing School Board; Nathan Triplett, East Lansing City Council; Peter Spadafore, Lansing School Board; and many others.

“Congratulations to these candidates and the dozens of other young Democrats across Michigan who won on Election Day and are currently being sworn-in in their communities,” Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer said. “These elected officials will bring new ideas to their communities and will help build Democratic values throughout Michigan.”

“We’re so proud to see so many young people elected to such important offices,” added Brewer. “It’s testament to their vision, hard work, and commitment to improving their communities. We look forward to working with all of them as we unite to move Michigan forward.”
