The Ann Arbor news is running an article on undergraduate Eugene Kang’s bid for city council:

Eugene Kang, 21, said Thursday he has collected well more than the 100 petition signatures required to run for council in the 2nd Ward and will file with the City Clerk’s Office by Monday’s 4 p.m. deadline. His entry into the race would guarantee a second Democratic primary for a council seat this August, a rarity in recent council elections. A contested primary is also expected in the city’s 4th Ward.

I also wrote up my own initial impression of Kang after a meeting with him recently:

  4. I was there. There were about a dozen people there when I was there, many friends of the candidate, a few curious people like me. Eugene said that he had been out knocking on doors and got a good response.

    He needs a blog of his own, as do all candidates for office.
