This afternoon, we took the city bus to City Hall to meet with Council member Chuck Warpehoski. He spoke with us about the Gelman dioxane plume, the rights of non-binary people in Ann Arbor, and the ways in which local government intersects with state and federal laws on both of these issues. These topics, in particular, are areas of study for some of our students in their work in the Michigan Student Caucus.
After our discussion, Mr. Warpehoski took us on a tour of council chambers and shared his own story about deciding to run for public office.
Tremendous thanks to Mr. Warpehoski for a fascinating and thought-provoking visit.
