View Diary: Mich Township Clerk calls Township Supervisor an "arrogant n!gger" (and, yeah, she's a Dem) (181 comments)

  •  Considering her age I'd say long-term incumbent (1+ / 0-)

    It looks like the city only has around 9,000 people.  Offices like Township Clerk are often filled by one person for a very long time.  Given she's 69 years old I'll bet she's one of those people who has been in the same office for a couple decades.  She probably got elected many years ago and maintained her office in a minority heavy town because she's a Democrat, has name recognition and never said anything overtly racist/offensive until now.  

    That would be my guess because looking at the town's website nearly all the other offices are occupied by African-Americans.
