Tuesday’s primary is a peek at what is to come in November

Last week’s voter turnout – over 3,500 — was nothing short of amazing and inspiring.
It’s rare for most voters to pay attention to primary elections, but this one was decidedly different.
For one, it featured several local candidates vying for the open state representative and state senate seats.
But we witnessed something else happening Tuesday besides a heightened interest in local candidates.
Voters we talked to were fired up – mostly about the direction our state and federal governments have taken. Hamtramck voters want change, and according to the latest polling data, it looks like that is going to happen come the November General Election.
The important takeaway, however, is that more people are taking elections seriously. Elections, many have come to realize, have consequences, and truly every vote counts.
Judging by what happened last week, the November General Election is going to be huge – you can just feel it.
So, get informed people, and remember the power of the ballot is a mighty thing.
And to the local candidates, you did an admirable job in campaigning, and for some, you came awfully close to winning. We hope candidates here build on this and make another try.

    The major local race in November that is currently heating up is for the District Court seat currently held by Alexis Krot.

    Krot was appointed by Governor Snyder to fill a vacancy created by the retiring Judge Paul Paruk.

    Krot formed an election committee on December 1, 2017 and filed it with the Secretary of State on December 8th, per State of Michigan records. The registered depositary bank for her committee funds is on Kercheval Ave. in Grosse Pointe and her registered campaign treasurer is Camilla Barkovic, a St. Clair Shores attorney.

    Shortly after there were rumblings of a possible opponent, Krot, in an apparent clumsy attempt to curry favor with Bangladeshi political interests, made a $100.00 donation on March 8, 2018 to the Anam Miah state senatorial campaign.

    Alexis Krot belongs to an influential family that has had business and real estate interests in Hamtramck for years. She is married to a police officer and sat as a magistrate in Hamtramck before her appointment by Snyder.

    Her challenger is John Gorniak, a criminal defense attorney with 25 years of legal experience.

    Doesn’t she live in Hamtramck?
    Why would she be banking in Grosse Pointe?

    Why would she jeopardize her good paying job by living outside Hamtramck?
    In this age of high tech cell phone location mapping and electronic surveillance, it will be very easy to prove if some elected official is lying on his or her real residency status.

    Dear Review,

    Your coverage of water rate hike or cut (depends on how someone looks at it) is grossly inadequate… Are you able to assign someone to do a report on this?

    This resident is interested to know why the people who conserve (or use less water) pay more, and the people who use more (use a lot of water) pay less.

    Thank you.

    Fatema Hossain, why don’t you just admit that you are either Mark Korai or John Gorniak? You clearly write like an attorney.
