Ferndale Mayor Dave Coulter has Lansing, and the state House of Representatives, in his sight. With 27th District Rep. Robert Wittenberg (D-Huntington Woods, Ferndale, Berkley, Oak Park) term-limited, and allegedly looking at the Oakland County Treasurer position, Coulter announced his campaign to run for his House seat. Coulter’s been mayor of Ferndale for nine years, and previously served on the Oakland County Board of Commissioners. “I’m excited to announce my desire to go to Lansing as the next state Representative from the 27th district. I know we can do better when it comes to supporting our public schools, fixing our infrastructure, creating jobs, making quality healthcare affordable for everyone, lifting up our children, and making Michigan a more welcoming and inclusive place,” he announced on Facebook in early July.
