Council’s four incumbents all seek re-election
A longtime member of the Lansing City Council will seek re-election in April.
Kenneth Ketchum, who has been on the council for 20 years, filed papers last week seeking re-election to his Ward 4 seat.
"I've got 20 years on here," Ketchum said, "I'll go for four more."
Ketchum spent 22 years in the U.S. Air Force and upon retirement began working for the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs. He retired from it in 1989.
With Ketchum's filing, each of the council members whose seats are up for election this year has announced his intention to seek re-election.
Other council members who have filed for re-election are: David Trinkle Jr., Ward 1; council president Don Studnicka, Ward 2; and Billy Blackwell, Ward 3.
