DETROIT (WWJ) – A key decision is expected sometime Monday from Wayne County Circuit Court Judge Lita Popke as to whether Mike Duggan’s campaign for Detroit mayor will be allowed to continue.
Currently, Duggan is running as a write-in candidate. And another mayoral hopeful, Krystal Crittendon, tells WWJ that she believes the court will make the right decision.
“I hope that the judges in this case properly interpret the law and apply it in this case, that’s all I want. Whether that means he’s on the ballot or not on the ballot, as long as the opinion is just and sound and according to Michigan law, I’m going to be happy,” says Crittendon.
She adds, “This is America and this is a democracy. And we have write-in candidates who have the ability to be written in, as long as he is qualified and he’s eligible and he plays by the same rules that every other person who might want to be a write-in candidate plays by, then of course I’m happy with it.”
Last month, Judge Popke disqualified Duggan from appearing on the August 6th primary ballot over a residency issue.
