Ross Announces Candidacy for EL City Council

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

 

Steve Ross has announced his candidacy for East Lansing City Council. The election will be November 3 and three seats will be up for grabs: those currently held by Mayor Nathan Triplett, Mayor Pro Tem Diane Goddeeris, and Councilmember Kathy Boyle. Councilmembers serve for four-year terms.

In a recent interview, Ross told me that as an MSU student, his concept of East Lansing was campus and a small stretch of restaurants and bars on Grand River Avenue. Today, as a year-round resident, professional and soon-to-be father, he said his worldview has dramatically expanded.
