Detroit - Former State Representative Ed Gaffney today announced that he is supporting attorney Pamela Sossi in the Democratic Primary for Michigan House District 1.
"Pamela Sossi is intelligent, articulate and cares very deeply about the needs and concerns of the people in the 1st District," Gaffney noted. “Of the 14 candidates in the August 8th Primary Election, Pamela Sossi is the most qualified.”
“I am humbled to receive the support of community leaders from both sides of the aisle,” Sossi stated. “I love our community and will do all that I can to make sure that each and every resident of District 1 has a voice in Lansing. No one will ever outwork me. I am committed to standing up to the special interests and powerful forces in Lansing so we can have safer streets, better schools for our children, and good paying jobs for our talented workforce.”
Although there are two Republican candidates and a Libertarian candidate running, Representative Gaffney explained why he is crossing the aisle: “Whoever wins the August 8th Democratic Primary will be our next State Representative. The most important thing concerned Republicans can do is vote in the Democratic Primary on August 8th.”
The 1st District includes the cities of Harper Woods and Grosse Pointe Woods as well as portions of Detroit and Grosse Pointe Shores. The Primary Election is August 8.
