City Councilman Election Frontrunners 1969


From Field Notes II, this map represents the political climate of 1969 where the core of the city was liberal leaning. Detroit hasn’t had a conservative (Republican) Mayor since Louis Mirani’s term ended in 1962. One of the front runners, Van Antwerp, had served as Detroit Mayor from 1948-1950 and served on the City Council until his death in 1962.
